    I can not figure out how to share songs with Bluetooth from my surface to another device. I connected/paired the devices but when I clicked on the song and clicked share, it said that I could not share them. How do I make this happen?

    With the RT, always start pairing from devices and printers, add a device.
    From the surface you can either right click the BT icon, send a file. Then follow the prompts
    Or, start with the song, right click, send to, Bluetooth device.
    If these don't work, unpair and pair again from 'add a device'.

    This same problem is bugging me to no end also.

    My experience here is some devices work flawlessly and others won't.

    Haven't been able to link and send any files to my phones or laptop over BT from the RT or WP8.1.
    Then I can stream music over BT to our RV's audio system no sweat.

    I thought the BT protocol versions for certain devices may have been incompatible.
    Not the case however since the RT seems to have a late version which of course backwards compatible.

    Which other devices aren't co-operating for you?

    Ironically, my Windows Phone and surface can't share files over Bluetooth. I tried forever! They were both paired, but it kept saying that I couldn't share it. The song was in my music folder, so it wasn't streaming or anything.

    How bizarre, how telling of these boards and posters, that complainers are liked and thanked, yet contributions from those who have figured things out, are neither.

    I answer questions and help with problems at Windows Phone - Microsoft Community.
    Of course there is a reply if the problem is not fixed. Very few reply back if the solution works.
    That's the way it is.

    Not sure how u guys are having problems I share via bt from my 928 to my dell venue 8 pro and vice versa all the time. Occasionally there's a few issues but I usually just re pair the devices. When sharing files always do it on the desktop
