How do I copy a video from tablet to computer?

Post by les95aly »

I have made a very short video with the webcam on the 250 version............it is saved onto my tablet but is there any way to save it onto my computer from the tablet, I know one can sync from the computer to the tablet but does it also go the other way?............or can it be saved somehow as an attachment onto an email where then I can save it onto the computer?......... I guess I just want to protect the video so I will always have it as a copy somewhere as it is a very precious video...........sorry if this is a lame or very basic question, I just have tried for hours last night to figure this out on my own so any help with this would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Forget the word "sync", that could mean anything. There is no problem copying files to and from the tablet via a simple USB cable connection, providing you know where the files are stored on the tablet. On my A70 the files are stored in /dcim/camera.

You use a File Manager app to navigate to the folder I cited and read off the name of the file.
