    Hi Cheryl, welcome to the forum. I've moved your question to the Samsung Galaxy Tab section where the folks familiar with your tablet can be found. Hopefully, someone there will be able to answer your question.

    can you clarify how you are trying to get movies in (copy and paste from explorer, clicking on a movie file on your tablet, clicking on a movie link on a website) and what type of movies these are

    based on the sparse description, the only thing i can surmise is that you are trying to play a video and it is telling you the format is not supported. If so this usually means you are missing a codec that enables playback. Try downloading Mobo Player or MX Video player and thier respective codec packs -
