Hi,

Just copy all your movies to your tablet (preferably in a folder)
Download and install MoboPlayer from Market to watch your movies.

Bon Voyage :)

hi,

ah... you have to install USB drivers on your laptop first.
Grab the usb drivers for windows from here
so when you connect your tablet to your laptop the tablet should show up as an external drive

cheers :)

Hi,

install wifi explorer and transfer using wifi network?

install wifi explorer in your tablet.
make sure both your laptop and tablet are connected to the same wifi network
launch the wifi explorer app on your tablet
launch your internet explorer on your laptop
type in the file explorer web URL <http://199.168.x.xxx:8000> in the address bar of internet browser - as seen on your tablet
manage your files from your laptop to tablet via internet browser

Example:
<create directory>[Movies]
<click> directory [Movies]
<choose file>
<upload files>

when you are done just close both the browser and the wifi file explorer app
you should be able to check your movie files in the Movies directory using file manager (e.g. Astro) and watch your movies using MoboPlayer

cheers :)
