How do i save videos on samsung tab 3 ?

we have shot many videos on the tab 3 Samsung but now wish to back them up on a USB flash drive . The charger is AC , if I buy a usb charger can this also transfer files to my desktop PC ? I also have a mini SD for the tab 3 but cannot figure out how to "send " the file to it .
TIA

you could setup a dropbox account and have it sync to a PC - free for 2gb plus, depends how many videos you have.

yes I have this already . so after moving them there . what then?

I think the frustration for me is not being able to use the tab 3 as a desktop . there is no right click and "send to"

set it up on a PC using the same username/password and it will automatically download them to the computer.
it can take a bit of time to sync though. double click the db icon will open the dropbox folder

on the tab just open the dropbox app and you should see them syncing

this isn't happening , 2 gb not enough . Can I just get a cable from tab to pc ?

Use cable that came with phone.

or how do I send a video file to the SD card?

Best download ES file explorer and you can copy/paste exactly like windows from phone to ex card.

You've given up already? Nooooooo!

The cable that you use to charge the Tab - it should have a small connecter - the one you plug into the Tab, and another one that's bigger that you can plug into a computer. If you do that, the computer will detect it just like a flash drive, and you can use the computer (with a mouse, left/right click etc) to find where the videos are stored on the Tab, and drag and drop them to the computer.

See how you get on with that. It's the easiest way, especially if you you need a proper keyboard and mouse.
