Bluetooth connected but not transferring
This is my first time using bluetooth so i'm a little inexperienced using/understanding it but it seems straightforward. I set up BT on my pc and galaxytab and in trying to move files to the tablet they just sit there and don't transfer to the tablet. I am definitely connected because when i turn on the tablet a media window pops up on my pc that's labeled with the tablet name and the other day i was checking out Pandora and the music was playing through my pc and not the tablet, so i can upload from the tablet but not download to it. This is what i tried when moving a file
right click on file
select "Send by Bluetooth to"...other devices
a window pops up with my phone (which doesn't work either but that's a different message board) and the tablet (listed as laptop computer but with the correct model number)
i select the tablet, click on ok
the File Transfer Manager window opens up and the file just sits there
Is there something else i need to configure? What am i missing?
Any help is appreciated.

I have the same problem Samsung had me reset the device once and wanted me to do it again. It is less than one month old I am inclimed to returm it instead.
I have the same issue before. Even with connecting other samsung android device like SGS II, it have difficulty to transferring the data although they already pairing. Sometimes it work though ...but more often it doesn't.
Then I download Bluetooth File Transfer from the market (free). After installed, I put the Bluetooth File Transfer widget at home window so I can activate the bluetooth from there. And now it works perfectly, I can transfer and receive file from cell, mac, etc.
Thanks for the replies. I already had BFT installed and never tried it.....yes I'm an idiot. I can connect the pad to the pc but when it gets to processing data I get a load error.
Reason: Can't get folder-listing of remote device
Reason: index=-8 length=4096
Anyone have thoughts or ideas?
