    I've ripped a dvd and moved in to my tablet. The problem is I can't move it over to the sd card. It keeps saying "cannot move" when I try to move from the internal memory to sd card when using Astro file manager. Any ideas?

    It seems you need to copy and paste it, rather than move it.

    Hi,

    Stick your micro SD card in a usb adapter and move your movies using your PC would be faster, then multiple delete your movies in your tablet.

    copy and paste using Astro one by one, then delete your movies one by one in your tablet. If you have a small number of movies.

    cheers :)

    updated: apologies... I stand corrected.

    ^^you can copy and paste multiple files and then move them on your tab using astro. You can then delete multiple files.

    I don't see any option for copy and paste in Astro. Just a "move" option. As far as taking out the sd card and putting it in an adapter, that would be a huge pain considering the case I have is skin tight. It would suck taking it off to get to the sd card every time I want to add a video.

    Long press the file you want to copy, then press the settings or edit button, and copy should be the first option.
    Then go to the destination you want the file to be and press setting or edit again and press paste.

    Hi,

    install wifi explorer to transfer and manage files using wifi network?

    install wifi explorer in your tablet.
    make sure both your laptop and tablet are connected to the same wifi network
    launch the wifi explorer app on your tablet
    launch your internet explorer on your laptop
    type in the file explorer web URL <http://199.168.x.xxx:8000> in the address bar of internet browser - as seen on your tablet
    manage your files from your laptop to tablet via any internet browser
    when you are done just close both the browser and the wifi file explorer app
    and you are done...

    cheers :)
