Hi - Would anyone be aware of a relatively easy way to transfer MP4 files from my pc to my acer tab? I would like to be able to watch movies on it where there is no internet access.

A micro usb cable would be the quickest. It should mount like a USB stick when attached to your PC. Just open the device through Windows explorer and put the vids where you want them.

Thanks - I did a hook up via that route - my pc said you can't transfer files here when I tried to send the file to the acer. I didn't open the device first though so I will try it..

I have tried this, opened the device and tried moving MP4 files from the desk top to the tablet. I'm unsure of which folder to place the files in, for instance, when I  moved a file to the downloads folder, I was unable to locate them on the tablet. Do I have to sync the tab to my pc running windows 7? Most of that stuff is beyond my ability level. Or maybe I should download the you tube movie at home (strictly using the tablet if such a thing is possible) so that I can watch it later at my workplace, which has no internet connection?

I'm unsure of why you cannot find the files you put on your tablet. I have never had an issue like that before...

 

Maybe someone else could shed some light on this.
