downloading right to sd card im not sure about, I haven't tried large files of theres a option to do it or not. but all my videos/pictues from camera save to sd card. I can play some game roms from sd card, saving back and forth. also some apps save to sd card when installing. so I think something may of not worked right for you.
I also have no problem using root explorer to save and move things to sd card.
on the one max your external card is labled as "sdcard2" not just "sdcard" if you move anything to the "sdcard" you still on internal storage,ot sure if you knew that or not.
the external card is also located at /storage/ex_sd but I always just click the root "sdcard2" location (less steps
