    Problem: Cant transfer files from PC or Android tablet to tablet.
    Version(S): PC: Win8.1 64-bit Android tablet: android 4.4 other tablet: Win8.1 not sure bit version
    Detail: Need to transfer file from CD to Win8.1 tablet.
    Steps tried:
    -extracted files from CD to .SFX archive and added a copy to PC and Tablet (android4.4)
    -tried over cloud, cloud upload failed and retried multiple times for same result.
    -tried direct file transfer from pc to WinTablet and from AndroidTablet to WinTablet with the appropriate cables, both times neither device detected the other
    -tried file transfer over homegroup, gave error message about "access denied" even after giving access on both devices
    -tried email but .sfx was too large (almost 800MB)
    -tried over Bluetooth on both devices (PC and android) again transfer failed
    -tried over WiFi connection, failed access denied
    -tried over Ethernet cable but only PC has Ethernet port
    help appreciated.
    thanks guys.

    sounds like you have file sharing turned off on one or all of the devices. they also should technically be on the same work group, but it's easy to get around that if you share a folder on all of the devices. it's pretty easy to do, you want to search for how to enable file sharing on the specific device. for the windows 8, you can go to the control panel and then network and sharing center. advanced sharing options are on the left side of the window, make the appropriate choice.
