If you buy your books from the Kobo store, you don't have to do a thing; the E-reader will recognize the existence of the Micro SD card and start using it automatically when the main memory is full. You don't have to do a thing; the E-reader will manage its own resources.

If you get books from other sources, I recommend the free program Calibre. It will give you the choice of whether to put the books into main memory or on the Micro SD card.

By the way, on most Kobo models the main memory IS a Micro SD card -- just one that happens to be hidden under the back cover plate. In other words, you have two now, and there's no particular advantage to having books on one or the other.

of course there's an advantage to using the external micro SD card slot it allows up to another 32GB worth of books rather than only the 4GB internal memory. the original Aura 6" doesn't have a micro SD card inside.

if you just copy and paste your sideloaded books directly onto the Aura then it works in exactly the same way when you sideload books onto the micro SD card. the only difference being the books will be on the SD card instead of the device but make sure the SD card is formatted in FAT 32.

Just copy them onto the external uSD card. You can do this either by removing the uSD card from your Aura and plugging it into a card reader on your computer (my preferred method since it is faster) or connect your Aura using a USB cable. When you plug the card back into your Aura, it should do the same scan for new content as when you safely eject your Aura. My habit is to have a directory called eLibrary on the card just to keep the sideloaded books separate from the other directories on the card.

@Koboy, you misunderstood what I wrote. My point was that there's no appreciable advantage to having any given book in internal memory vs. having it stored on the externally accessible Micro SD slot.
