" It is a simple process to move files from a pc to a tablet using a cable to interconnect the devices (have already done that with my RM files). The question is how utilize the Roots Magic App 'File' selection to find the files if they are now stored on an SD card and not in the tablet device memory".
Moving the files was easy, But I haven't been able to discover how to have the RM App find them yet.
There where two objectives in my using a hard cable approach; 1) No need for internet connection (or 3rd party services) & 2) Placing the files where I wanted them on my tablet (in this case on the SD Card and not using up device memory for storage).
So I also was unable actually open up a transferred file but thought that was because I had placed it on the SD Card where the RM App was not designed to anticipate files yet. Would be pleased if some one at RM would let us know the exact file (folder) location that this App is pointed at while we wait for a process to permit the data file to be placed at a location of our choosing

I have tried many different locations without it working, they will hopefully see how unusible it is to many of us and make some changes.
I appreciate and understand the ease with which they made it for those that use drop box but hope they adapt to other users.

Thanks 'Roger-Ohio' for your input.
However, at least for me, having the RM6 data file in a folder named 'RootsMagic' still does no permit the Android App to locate the file since it does find folders or file when they are on a SD memory Card and not in the device primary memory.
When I select "Files > On Device" from the program bar nothing appears. I really want a function option to deliver into all my files on my tablet and let me select which I wish open.
Going from the other direction and selecting the .rmgc data file on the SD Card and attempting to open it results in an "unable to find program to perform this function' error.
(Hoping the tech staff at RootsMagic would chime in on all these issues and say "We recognize the need and are working to issue a 1.02+ update quickly")

You do not need to install Dropbox on your computer in order to get your RMGC into it and use it on your device. We have the procedure to just work with the online Dropbox service in a Knowledge Base article. The link is below.
