Transfering files with Kies
As of yesterday am a proud and happy owner of a Galaxy Tab
I have used Handbrake to transcode some Movies into the correct format, when I use Kies to transfer them, even though I drag them into the movies folder showing in Kies, it's putting them into the camera directory on the tablet and I'm having to manually move each one to the move directory.
What am I doing wrong please?

Why don't you just mount the drive containing the desired folder under windows and simply use explorer or your windows file manager of choice to drag the handbrake files to the desired folder. You don't really need to kies to do this.
+1 on this. I just did this EXACT thing with 4 movies today and it couldn't have been easier or quicker.

Also, part of the disk space mounts like an external disk so you can make use of that also.
Many thanks all.
That did the trick
use samba its the best wireless file transfer ever its in the market and its free
it puts your tablets harddrive and sd card on your pc wirelessly
youll never have to mount unmount use kies need your data cable nothing !!!!
Does Samba require root? If so, that may be a non-starter for some newbies who don't want to go there with their tab. Just sayin' - though it looks like an awesome app.
nope dont need root just install
only thing you must be have pc and tab on same wifi for first configure
Would not install for me - said it needed Super User access, so that's why I ask. Perhaps I'm installing the wrong version? Using a WiFi only Tab.
