    SD Card Reader to Micro SD Port Adaptor

    You could .... buy a good quality micro sd of the size you need. These usually come with an adapter that allows the micro sd to fit into a standard sd card slot. Put this combo into your camera and extract the micro when needed to go into the SP4. I do this with a 128gb in one of my cameras...

    Is a Surface Pro 4 a good solution for my situation?

    My experience with the SP4 i5/4gb/128gb. I was recently on a project in the UK which involved: 1) converting 75 images from Canon CR2 raw format to jpg. 2) processing each image to straighten, crop, colour correct with photoshop. 3) import 50 of the above images into ProShow Gold (by photodex)...

    Second defective charger USB Port out of the box

    I had a try with the charger that came with the SP4. With the SP4 connected, if I connect my Dell Venue 8 Pro (DV8P) to the usb charger port, the charging starts to oscillate between the two devices. Disconnecting either device allows normal charging. It would seem that the charger does not have...

    Warranty differences for SP4 ?

    Thanks @Darnellmc ... so far it appears that SquareTrade does not operate in Canada ... only US and UK. I'm awaiting confirmation on that. thanks @Telstar .... looks like I would have to order directly from MS then. I'm going to the city today and will see if Costco has one in stock ...

    Warranty differences for SP4 ?

    I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba and the closest physical MS store is in Minneapolis. I'm wondering if anyone has comments on whether there is significant difference between the Best Buy and Microsoft warranties. In my case, all BB stores are sold out and I can order either through BB or from the MS...

    Photo Viewer App Please

    @ArnoldC ... yes, I have tried Image and admittedly it's a very nice app. The only problem with it is that it takes so long to render the images. Raw takes around 15 secs. to render and jpeg's are much faster but the user cannot swipe through the images quickly even when not displaying the...

    I have a Brother HL-2030 printer connected to a Win 7 desktop computer. The printer is set as shared. I can print to the printer from other computers. Plugging the printer into the Surface usb port works ok ... the printer prints. Brother confirms that the RT core has the proper driver...

Ron... 1. Log into your second account on your device. 2. Open up the Store. 3. Open...

    Photo Viewer App Please

    @ArnoldC ... yes, Fotor looks very good. Only problem is that it does not allow the user to do a quick finger swipe scan of all the photos in full size mode. The default Surface Photo viewer is all I need if only I could get an indication of which photo I'm looking at .... Grrr ... so close...

    Photo Viewer App Please

    @Russ ... thanks for the reply and any digging you did on my behalf. Yes, the Surface photoviewer is actually quite good and I wish I could just find a way to display the file name and extension. I guess I will just keep rooting around and wait ... something is bound to pop up. I will have...
