    Whenever I download a movie to my internal storage, or sd card, I cannot find the movie in the file menu, they have downloaded, it's just not showing anywhere, I cannot access them, what am I doing wrong.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Where are you downloading these movies from? Which tablet do you have?

    What app are you using to perform these downloads?

    If you look in the settings of that app, are you able to pick a download destination?

    What app are you using to try and find the download?

    Have you connected to a PC/laptop to see if you can find the download with the folder browser?

    Has this ever worked for you in the past? How long has this been happening?


    There are literally so many possibilities for this I wouldn't even know where to start guessing. We need more information.

    This was normal whenever I downloaded from a streaming service for offline play, multiple services I've used hide the files for copyright protection. The files are essentially hidden to prevent them from being copied or moved to reduce piracy.

    If you use something like total file commander or the like you may be able to find them. I know at one time finding them broke them though.

    I'll just preemptively say that if you're trying to download movies from a "free" (i.e., illegal) website, we'll just close this thread.
