Ok so I recently downloaded a TV show onto my Galaxy Tab 7.0 wifi. The problem is that despite the fact that I have a Micro SD card I cant for the life of me figure out how to transfer the files. The card is formated and shows up with the 29gigs of free space but how do I transfer files onto it? The files are saved in /root/(the folder containing them's name) on the "my files" app on another it says the location is "mnt/sdcard/. The Files are not however on the card but in my internal memory taking up 11g that I would like to get on the sd card. Thank you in advance for any possible help.

open "My Files" /Root, browse to the folder containing the files you wish to transfer, tap "Select",
check the box for the files to copy to SD Card, tap "Copy", tap the "up Arrow" top line (to get back to /Root),
tap "External_SD", browse to the folder you want to copy the files to, tap "Paste"

when you see all the files you wanted, on your SD Card & check they will run from there, delete the copies on the Internal memory

alternately, set Tab "USB settings" as "Mass Storage", connect your Tab to your PC via the USB cable,
open PC "My Computer", your Tab will show as two new "Removable Disk (?)", expand those to drag & drop files as normal
