    I am trying to use the Surface Pro to transfer photos from a Canon SD memory card into the tablet. The tablet responds with "the card is not formatted". The cards input just fine on my other computers running W7. I did get a message to make sure all drivers were installed. I have performed all updates to this new Surface. I also tried to format with the Surface but the camera then shows the card as full.Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Which camera do you have? Is your Surface an RT or Pro?

    It must be ExFAT formatted.
