    Do you mean move it from your drive into your tablet? Check out ES File Manager...I use it and it has the ability to do that. Only annoying thing it that it still moves it into the bin in your google drive.

    No. No. No. No. No. That would completely defeat the main purpose for using Google Drive. GD is designed to save your files in a Google server and then allow you to access said files over wifi, not to view, then download the files.

    I can see just why you'd want to save a local copy - for when you wish to work on a document when you have no WiFi connectivity.

    I've used offline files many times and uploaded to Google when I've got home.

    True but I hear it's really not that difficult to get around the geolock.

    I completely get why someone would want to use Google Drive as a remote drive such that you can copy anything file to and from it. I guess I'm old school because I don't trust cloud storage. There are too many places at work where I get no wireless signal so it's necessary to make things local. Also, since I'm a geek, I want to control where it is kept locally, not Google.

    ES File Explorer does allow you to do that but honestly, I use Dropbox because I find it easier to maintain.

    I'm in Canada and I've been using it for months - we just don't have the ability to purchase music here.

    I have a bunch of mp3 songs on my computer, if it is possible, what do I need to do to get them to load onto my nexus and then play through the speakers or a headset?

    "We're sorry. The Google Play music player is currently only available in the United States."

    Go to the Google Music website (http://play.google.com/music I think), there's an upload music link there that will allow you to download the Music Manager software. You can have it upload your entire iTunes library (or just specific playlists, songs, etc).

    Once done you can see your music in the Play Music app on your devices!

    EDIT - just saw the message you're seeing. That's so odd, both my wife and I (in Southern Ontario) are able to access and use the Google Music service fine for months now.

    One surefire way to get it working is use a proxy to visit the site so you appear to be visiting from the US.
