    Whenever I try to drag and drop an MP4 file to my device, I get a message that says, file type is not supported on this device. Then it gives me the option to skip, skip all, cancel. How to I get this thing to work?

    Welcome to the forum

    Where are you dragging and dropping from and what are you using to do it?

    Thanks.

    I'm transferring from my PC. If I download the file from my tablet it has no problem playing the file but it won't transfer the same file from my computer.

    You still didn't say what you were using to do the transfer. I can only guess it was Widows Explorer. Try using an app from the Play Store called AirDroid.

    I was just dragging the file from my hard drive and dropping it in the downloads folder connected via USB. That's it. I'll try Air Droid now. Sorry, I'm a noob when it comes to tech stuff.
