    I have some books that I downloaded. I want to move them from internal memory to a folder on SD card. When I try to paste the file it says file cannot be moved. I can copy/paste just fine. I tried it in AndExplorer and ES File Explorer.
    What am I missing?

    Yes, copy/paste is fine, just not cut and paste.

    The error is "failed on cross-device link"
    From the terminal cp -r * works but the mv * fails.
    Here is some more info on post #34:
    [MOD]Auto Swap Extention - Page 4 - xda-developers

    This can be done easily from the terminal with cp followed by rm. Both can be put in a simple script that can be run with Gscript with just a couple of clicks, no typing.
    In Post #12 of the following thread is the simple script:
    http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...terminal-commands-like-reboot-recovery-2.html

    Caution: /sdcards/eBooks/ must exist first or you may just rm even if cp fails!
