I need to transfer around 1000 audio files at a time from my laptop to my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.

It's asking for permission every time for each file. Are there any settings that'd allow me to transfer all files at once? I don't find any settings on my tab.

If you download the Android SDK, you will get the adb executable in /platform-tools/adb.

With it, you can push an unlimited number of files directly to your Android device from a command line, e.g. in Bash, once your tablet is connected to the computer via USB:

for i in *.mp3; do adb push "$i" /mnt/sdcard/some/place/; done

Note that you might have to enable USB debugging from your tablet's preferences for this to work.

Knowing your operating system and the specifics of what you want to transfer where would help though. – slhck Nov 22 '12 at 11:10

A less technical approach would be to:

  1. Zip them up
  2. Email them to an account on the Tab
  3. Extract them using an app like Androzip or ASTRO
