    Database app

    Not much experience with excel, but at least it would be accessible by my mobile as well as my tablet.

    Database app

    Hi there. I know the Surface RT has Office built-in so I should be able to make my own database, but I'd like an app to store all details of my books, Cds, DVDs, etc. Very geeky I know, but that's why we're on this forum isn't it? Ideally I'd like one that's available on Windows mobile too...

    Flash drive compatibility

    I'd have to check. I haven't got the drive with me. I would think FAT32 or whatever the default setting is on the Surface RT.

    Flash drive compatibility

    I don't know if anyone else has experienced this, but I've formatted a flash drive on my Surface RT for storing music on. I've saved a load of music on it from a Windows 7 laptop. When I insert the flash drive into another PC (Windows XP), it won't read the drive and asks permission to format...

    That's interesting, but you're probably right. The SDXC cards seem a bit harder to get hold of and very expensive. I've had 3 SDHC cards and none of them have worked right. Easier with a pen drive anyway - I can use it in TV, PC and tablet. I don't know why I didn't buy one in the first...

    I think I might have sussed the problem. The new card was no better. I've looked all over and I think I'm using the wrong cards. The ones I've bought are micro SDHC. I think they should be SDXC. Would this make a difference? I've decided to go down an easier and cheaper route. I've ordered...

    Thanks anyway. I'll see what happens when the new card arrives.

    Ah, right. Yes, if I put any 5 videos on the card they will work. If I add another video to the folder, the new video won't work, but the original 5 will. I've contacted the seller and he's replacing it. If that doesn't work, I'll have to store them on the Surface's hard drive.

    different videos. All 5 work ok. Less than 5 videos still work ok.

    The files are about 1gb. Some are more, some are less. I don't know the brand of card, I bought it off ebay, but it does have 12 months guarantee. I've messaged the seller for advice.

    Ok, tried again. It will only allow 5 working video files on the card. Anything more doesn't work. The files are on the card, but they won't play. This is exactly what happened on my previous SD card. Could I have bought 2 cards with the same problem, or am I missing something?

    Surface RT

    I've just transferred a couple of video files to my Surface using a flash drive. The files play on the Surface from the flash drive, they play on the surface when I transfer the files onto the surface. When I transfer them onto the SD card, they won't work. I would normally say that this must...

    Thanks for that. The version of Handbrake I have has a load of alternatives down the right hand side for various tablets (Ipad, Samsung, etc). Could I select one of those?
