    So I recently added a 64gb MicroSD card to my Surface so I can have a place to store my music. We have a NAS, but sadly Windows RT won't connect to those.

    Anyway, I say "for life" because I don't think this thing will ever come out. It went in there extremely tightly and I think it is not fused permanently. I tried to pull it out in with various implements, but no good. All I achieved was some more scratches on my case. :-/

    Anyone else using one? Should they be removable?

    It won't push in to pop out?

    Nope, this is how it's supposed to work:

    I'm just curious why doesn't your surface connect to NAS?
    I was planning to buy one and thought NAS works perfectly on windows rt as well, since it has a feature to mount network drive like all other windows

    Mine doesn't push in to pop out, but it does come out with my fingernail pretty easily. The card has a little ridge on it that I can hook.

    As for the NAS, you should be able to see it. If another Windows machine can connect, then the surface should be able to do this as well.

    Myself I have an installation of Server Essentials 2012 and I am even able to add the music and video shares to my Surface libraries. Works great.

    Hmm. Maybe this card is just a little bit chubbier than most. I'll fiddle with it more.

    As for NAS, my Surface 2 connects to it just fine as a mapped drive. It just won't let you map it to a library. So Xbox music won't look at a NAS for media files at all.

    My Surface connects to my NAS no problem.
    I have also heard of issues with SD cards getting stuck on this board.
    I would return the unit... once you get your card out.

    Try adding the folder(s) to the indexed locations. You should then be able to add it to a library.
