I have a Lenovo tablet and I need to know how do I load stuff onto the tablet? I'm looking to use this tablet with the business and I want to put pictures, videos and the contract on the tablet. The reason I want to put the contract on the tablet is so that if I need to email a contract to a potential client or client I can do so with my tablet. Please help and thanks.

It's all pretty simple....just Fax the photos and info to a nearby Kinkos.. from there, scan everything in and load it on to their computer. Open the back of your tablet and take out the sim card... insert it into the kinkos computer... if no slots seem to fit it...open the cd tray...lay it gently on the tray...and push it forward... the computer will take a few seconds to recognize the sim card... once recognized... load all your info and picture fax scans into the can folder... its the folder thats shaped like a trash can on the desktop page... they nicknamed it the "can" folder because it "CAN" do anything.

Once loaded... you will want to reformat the folder...or in laymans terms... you will need to right click and empty the recycle bin... thats just fancy talk for reformatting the can folder.

Once done... re insert the sim card back into the tablet... but be careful not to do so with the battery in place... remove the battery and keep it sterile by immersing it in 1 part liquid soap and 3 parts water.

Once the sim is in place...wipe the battery clean and re insert.

Voila! You are now in business!

You just can't help taking something serious and making a joke. You're a D*** head. What did your wife see in you?

lololol at "serious"

....20 people are going to sit here and explain this simple procedure to you over and over...and in the end...you will never get anything on that tablet....and even if you do...you will never send an email with anything attached.

Met my wife at the White Castle she worked at... it was love at first sight...

Yet here we are, seven days a week, watching one guy build a barn while handing out a lifetime's worth of advice to the sideshow act. It's more fun than binge-watching "Springer".

It's on my PC and Chris this is serious when I say this. I'm not a computer wiz. So what you say is simple is something that I don't know how to do. Just like there are things that come easy to you and me at Djing that someone else would be lost trying to do what ww do which is easy to us because we've had lots of practice at doing what it is we do.

So I'm asking for help for something I don't know how to do. That's no different than someone else asking how to do something they don't know how to do on here.

Seeing that you don't get basic concepts of copying and pasting or using a flash drive to transfer files... it's going to be really hard for anyone to help you blindly... we don't know how you have your directories set up, where the files are exactly located, where you want them to go, etc. so that we can say do this do that do this, move this to that folder etc. Your simple question of help me move this from here to here is a lot harder than it sounds to answer on a forum. A kid would be able to help you in 2 minutes... where as we've been at it for years and still can't help you because we can't see what you have and what you're doing.

That and if he follows the links above to his previous posts about this, there were a few suggestions on where to start and not sure he even tried those.

My point is....
if YOU put those files on your PC...
than you can use the same technique to transfer them onto the tablet.

Mix .. the easiest way to access files on a tablet is to use a cloud storage account like Box, Dropbox, Google Cloud, OneDrive .. there are many others.

Take Dropbox for an example. Get a free Dropbox account with 2Gb of storage here ... Dropbox Basic (Free account) - (https://www.dropbox.com/basic)

Then download the Dropbox app on your tablet (search for Dropbox in the app store) . Get someone to help you download the Dropbox app on your PC from their website too .. it works and looks like a file folder to Windows.

Now, any file you copy to the Dropbox folder on your PC magically appears in the Dropbox app on your tablet. It even has built in file viewers for many filetypes, so it can show a PDF file or a Word document or an eXcel spreadsheet or even play a mp3 file.

oh and pictures too .. if you ever get some that make sense to show ...

I think you may have lost him after "the easiest way"...
Hell, you lost me after the second paragraph.

This is me talking into the future, when Mix asks this again and someone finds this long lost thread.

Mix, it is rude to ask for help without providing as much detail as possible.

What exactly you have..model, etc

What have you tried...what exactly the problem is.

These are basic computer functions that can easily be accessed by Google or any search engine. I Google how to do things on an almost daily basis.

People are happy to help, but will feel like they are being taken advantage of if it looks like you aren't even trying. It also looks like you aren't trying when you ignore previous threads with exactly the same request.

Apparently he is sufficiently enough, NOT YOU!

P.S. Just so you know...NO ONE (that is serious) TAKES YOU SERIOUSLY...except, maybe, your wingman, DeeeeeJayNitemair.

...So I'm asking for help for something I don't know how to do . That's no different than someone else asking how to do something they don't know how to do on here.
Oh, I beg to differ.

Someone else asking, is a singular event, an "asked and addressed but once" circumstance.

You asking is like watching Sisyphus rolling a boulder up a hill in the depths of Hades...aka, ETERNALLY ONGOING/NEVER ENDING!
