    On my S5 I cannot send via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi direct to my Tab4 10.1 or my wife's
    S5 or Tab4. The connections are being made but keeping getting "file not sent".

    Where to start looking?

    Also tried it with Quick Connect and it will actually make the receiving device show
    a popup to accept or decline a transfer but then the sending device shows sending failed.

    Sorry, I have no more ideas.
    I own one android phone and two android tablets. I connect the android devices to a computer using the charging cable and move any files back and forth that way. About the only thing I move are pictures off the devices and onto the computer.

    I tried a wifi app once and it was more trouble than it was worth so I removed it.

    Found SideSync from Samsung. Seems to work fairly good. Kind of like mirrowing with drag and drop.

    Have you made sure your software on devices are both upto date. Have you tried it with any other devices? Only other think I can suggest from my mobile tech experience is a factory reset. If not it could be an issue with the file your sending
