    Default file sharing between two samsung products?

    I'm having difficulty sharing files between my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and my Samsung Galaxy S3. Does anyone have tips on how to get the file sharing to work?

    Please note that the devices are on the same WiFi network, power saving mode is disabled, file sharing is on for both devices, and the devices are recognized on both the tablet and phone. So I'm not really sure why my tablet is giving me the, "Failed to send file," message.

    I think you need NFC turned on both devices for that to work.

    NFC isn't available for the tablet. I have the DLNA sharing enabled for both devices. So I'm at a loss for what the issue could be.

    You can try file sharing via Bluetooth.
