    Ive been downloaded some images. I tried to move them to sd card but it seems not shown either in sd card or ext sd card. I lookup thru “all files” folder. I already moved screenshots images to ext sd card, but still where are those images?

    after downloading application from market, my tab force closed. and the applications disappeared. I tried to reset it, but the screen says that there is a problem in the home command so it has to force close again. I cannot hard reset it because the settings command is not in my widget. I can receive calls and msgs, but i have no access to all of the applications in my tab.
