Windows 7: I just stole this Samsung Galaxy 2.0 7 inch Tablet !

21 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit sp1
 
 

it came with that but the transfer is still slow that is why i have a card reader that would do it in half the time the only problem i have right now is waiting for this blasted sync to finish after this never again !

Yup I was right i took the SD out put it in my card Reader set up a movie folder and bam less then 12 minutes 7 full length childrens movies

I must of been on a real good one not to think of doing it that way it must of been all the hype of trying to use these debunked software in hopes of a connection like pc to pc which it is pretty much showing me it's limitations

You might benefit greatly from a little time spent in the android app store. 90% of what you are wanting is covered by apps. Most of them free.

Guess I shouldn't tell you I only paid $149 for the one I got my daughter for Christmas.

She had wanted a Nintendo DS but this seemed like a much better idea, seeing as the tablet can do so much more and you're not stuck on the buying/selling/trading games merry-go-round. Guess it was a good idea as she has been having fun with it.

lol you are killing me smalls hahaha

Well Black friday or Xmas time i was on some other spending venture from Stompies to Woody and Jessie Toy Story Dolls this was a decision made on her playing with my Android phone and her Cousins have a tablet as well

7inch is perfect for a child she doesn't need a massive 10 inch the best part of all of this is the entertainment and learning value it will give my daughter for learning which she has seemed to take a liking to and making it more fun for her

I have atleast 20 free Kid apps i already loaded and some of her pesonal favorites on the SD Technicly though in the very end of this I will have spent more then 179.00 as im going to purchase this Protector OtterBox Defender Series Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 77-22228 - Best Buy samsung&cp=1&lp=13 Im going to check if they have it somewhere cheaper also wow looking at the best buy page they have alot of tablets deals but you have to order it and in the end it would be the same price with all the SH&P

Good news I found the way to link Windows 7 and any Android tablet to Homegroup file sharing

Only thing is you will not see it Logged into Homegroup but you will see the Device as a shared device

You want to set your Tablet to near by Devices and open up file sharing FPSSD -FTP

Download ES File Manager then after that there should be a tab in the left hand corner giving you connection types

Local ,Lan ,FTP ,Bluetooth

Use Lan as it is a Direct link after that hit the tab that has + sign for adding a new server hit scan your IP adress should show right up

after this enter in the name and the password to the PC you will be file transfering with

after this it should open up all your shared PC folders like using Homegroup

Now keep in mind when playing videos go for the Biggest buffering size and adjust some of the player settings because the buffering isn't set right so it will be choppy but once the settings have been moded everything else is pure fun

If you have any other questions feel free to PM me on the issue as I just learned how to do this myself and it cuts all the BS out of trying to link swap and save

I don't think ES FileExplorer is using the Homegroup, it is accessing a plain old Windows share. Regardless, it's very useful to be able to access your Windows machines from the tablet, isn't it?

There are actual remote desktop apps too, they are all pay apps so far as I know though.

I use ES myself for streaming videos though and it does just fine.
