Hello and good evening to you. I have the samsung note 8.0 4G tablet. I think the tablet is amazing but it has a drawback that i'm totally baffled about!!!

The tablet comes with 16gb inbuilt stroage. I am using the android app called wifi file transfer to transfer various videos to my tablets internal card storage and all the videos play flawlessly with no problem whatsoever, and i'm using mx video player, bare in mind the files are in different formats.

But when I copy the exact same files(either wirelessly or with the usb cable) I get the message cannot play files or it looks like they have been compressed but they wont play!!!! I'm totally baffled by this. But the same files are on my galasy s4 mobile fones 64gb external storage card and they ALL play!!!!

Ive tried different videos players from the play store, but still the same problem!!! But they play on the internal storage of my tablet!!

Can someone explain what the problem could be please?? I see know reason why i would need to convert the files if they ALL play on the internal storage.

Perhaps you can make the following clearer so we understand exactly what the problem is:

"The tablet comes with 16gb inbuilt stroage.

You seem to say that they all work, then you say they don't?
