For simply exporting a file to your SD card, refer to the following help article:

Note that Dropbox will always use your internal storage. If you mark files as available offline or open files for viewing/editing, Dropbox will use internal storage for its cache. It's not possible to have it use the SD card instead of internal storage.

Can Dropbox make this work?? this would be a game changer for syncing music or films to a device and I doubt there would be a huge amount of work involved.
