    Hello,

    I thought I it figured out how to do it without an app, but I can't seem to reproduce how I ever did it :(

    Sure I can hook it to my PC and move the files that way, but surely there's a way to do it w/o the PC!

    I am talking about photos or video files NOT apps, I only want to move the .jpgs and .3gp's to a folder on the SD card.

    I see a lot of apps to move things, but they seem to be for moving apps to the SD card, not what I want to do.

    Is there a way to do this w/o an app? If not what app would you recommend I get?

    Thanks in advance!

    ES File Manager/Explorer can cut/copy/move/delete etc. Most file managers can. You're looking for "moving" apps and what you need is a file manager.

    leeshor,

    thanks but I already have a file manager on the home page/desktop. The one I have came with the tablet, why would the one you suggest be any better? I can cut/copy/paste with the one I have..but apparently I am doing something wrong in the process. Again I do NOT want to move apps, just .jpg files I d/l and some videos.

    If I open my file manager I can see both the Internal and SD drives
    I find the file I want to move located on the internal drive
    I select that file by holding it down till it highlights
    Then I choose COPY or even CUT
    I go back to the SD card and choose PASTE
    Nothing happens....

    Where am I going off the rails?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have no idea why it appears not to work. I suggest you try the same thing with AirDroid. There is a possibility that there is something wrong with the SD Card.

    leeshor,

    NM I got it to work now it's fine... I guess I was holding the icon to PASTE, too long and it wasn't going anywhere. Just a tap and it works now.

    Sorry to have bothered you with this!

    Regards,

    ES

    I don't see a problem with the method you used. It should work.

    You are correct, it does work fine IF I don't hold down the paste button too long!

    Cheers and tnx again.
