    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 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:confused: ...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?
    Thanks again.
