Might anyone on the list be using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2?
I've been "enjoying" a Dickens of a time trying to get it to sync

This question would be better-posted to an Android forum, such as
androidcentral.com, androidtablets.net or androidforums.com, IMO.
That being said: I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. I've transferred
files between my three Android devices and my computers in each of
the following ways:
USB connection. Tablet or phone looks to the computer like a USB
You may have to go into Settings (on my Samsung tablet it's
Settings -> Storage -> USB computer connection) to set the
connection type. (I'm not running Samsung's broken Android
implementation, anymore, either.)
MicroSD card. 8GB microSD cards are both as cheap and as common
SMB (aka: Microsoft Windows file sharing), using ES File Explorer
on the Android device, with the directory on the computer side
shared to the LAN.
Via DropBox. Copy/move the file(2) to/from DropBox on one device,
and the same on another. On the computer side you can use a web
interface or DropBox' software.
I also once used VXConnectBot's built-in file transfer capability,
when I was logged-in to a machine at work from my tablet.
(VXConnectBot is an SSH application for Android).
Btw: Android devices don't "sync" with a PC or other device like, for
example, PalmOS devices used to. (And more's the shame, IMO.) You
can get a connection, and manually shuffle files back and forth, but
there's no "syncing," per se. I believe there are some apps that
have syncing ability, but not the entire device.
Good luck and HTH.
