How do I get files off my Android tablet?

Episode 998 (1:07:35)

Jason from Cooper, TX

Jason has a Metrocom Android tablet that he bought on Amazon awhile back and he can't get his files moved over to the SD card. Leo says that since Jason has a third party cheap tablet, and it's running Android, he's stuck with whatever kind of support that manufacturer offers. Most are very bad and cheaply made. Leo says you get what you pay for.

Copying to an SD card should be pretty straightforward, though. Leo says to just plug it into the computer via the USB port. Then tap 'USB Device connected', and choose either 'file storage' or 'photo copying'. He could try both. If none of that works, there is an Android file transfer program.
