I read this solution somewhere: Instead of paying an unwanted amount to repair the spring-loaded SD slot, get a "Micro-SD" card. It comes with a full-size SD "envelope/adaptor" that fits most cameras' SD slot.

micro SD card won't stay in slot, always bounces out...please help! Hi I've been trying to expand storage by putting a 32gb micro SD card into the slot, but the card won't stay in. The phone recognises the SD card, but the card is "removed" whenever I let my finger go.

I just got the RPi3 and notice that it doesn't eject my microSD card when I press into it.
All my RPi2's have a spring ejection of the microSD card as does all my microSD slots I've ever come across.
Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a change in hardware.
It works just fine, but makes it terribly hard to get the microSD card out when the RPi3 is in a case.
EDIT: I just noticed that the microSD card slot is different from those on my RPi2.
Can anyone confirm whether their microSD card slot on their RPi3 is spring loaded?
The SD card holders on the Pi3 are friction fit.
The push-push type on the Pi2 suffered frequent problems.
Thanks for the response.
I actually did find the answer online as well just as you posted.
From: "The micro SD slot that provides the storage and boot media for the Raspberry Pi now appears to have changed from a click-in and click-out design to one where the card just pushes in and is held in place by friction.
I eject the microSD card out fairly frequently when I test different installations.
In the case, the edge of the microSD card is just flush with the case surface.
In RPi2, by ejecting the microSD, it pops out and makes it easy to grab.
With the RPi3, I have to fish this web page out with my fingernails.
So I welcome this decision.
Indeed I like SD slot of first RPI.
I don't see any micro sd card slot spring of microSD for RPI's.

Contrary to popular belief, humorous signatures are allowed.
I currently have the RPI 7" screen which connects to the pi via DSI ribbon cable, which happens to be just over the micro sd slot.
Now with everything bolted, it's so fiddly hard to take out sd card, and i do switch cards quite frequently.

When you've crashed your B+, your A+ and your 2B one time too many by leaning on the SDCard and having it pop out.
Then you'll think differently.
The SDCard comes out easily if I need to pull it with tweezers or with a bit of tape on my 3B and my Zero.
The RPF folks made the right decision.

Now with everything bolted, it's so fiddly hard to take out sd card, and i do switch cards quite frequently.
I have the screen also but leaving my Pi2 insideI keep meaning to get a slightly longer cable or maybe the existing one will work and reroute it around the slot.
If you look how they made the Astro Pi cases, the cables can be folded: I saw some one suggested using tweezers to remove the micro sdcard I would advise against that as I have destroyed one card already with that advise.
Tried the tape 'hack' to aid in the friction of the MSD card.
Still fails with rainbow screen.
Took the same MSD, placed it in the PI2 with spring ejection booted right up.
Created a new NOOB distro on two new 8GB sandisk MSD, both failed to load on the PI3, but loaded just fine on the PI2.
I even tried using my MSD card from the SWITCH they are a little thicker, about.
I have asked for an RMA to see if maybe i just got a bad board, so we will see.
Indeed it is a big step backward to switch from the spring slog type to the friction.
I already broke a microSD card that way.
I was not even being negligent.
Once inside most Raspberry Pi cases, removing an SD card becomes almost impossible.
It didn't break or anything, but once inside an SD card slot, it started melting due the pressure that had previously been applied to it, which was not even anything out of the ordinary.
Regardless the microSD card had shorted.
Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:40 amIndeed it is a big step backward to switch from the spring slog type slot ci the friction.
There is no absolute better or worse though there may be some consensus on which is deemed most desirable for the majority.
It really depends on preference and use case.
I prefer spring-loaded push-push over friction push-pull.
I have struggled removing push-pull SD Cards, have had to dismantle cases to extract then, and sometimes with great difficulty because I did not want to break the card in the process.
But I have also inadvertently caused push-push SD Cards to pop out when not intended.
Luckily I haven't suffered any damage, but both choices can have failures, and both can lead to damage.
I personally have had fewer issues with push-push than push-pull but others report differently.
I don't know if failure modes or which is most likely eaton xslot card have problems has ever actually been quantified but pushing a push-pull to remove an SD Card should be less likely to cause damage than pulling a push-push.
That is the most common damage I have seen done to push-push sockets.
I would therefore suggest push-push is the best choice only when it can be guaranteed that a pull attempt cannot be micro sd card slot spring, a push-pull best when it cannot.
In that respect the friction fit push-pull choice would seem right for a Pi.
If you prefer a push-push type uSD card socket why not simply use one of these Also 'protects' your RPi's socket from wear-out in case you have smart card on elitebook remove the card quite often.
Durability of a uSD card socket is in a range of 10k cycles Display posts from previous: Sort by.

The spring would just kick the card back out. I thought maybe my card was defective since it was the first time plugging it in, but when I tried the old card, it wouldn't lock either. I tried the new card in another microSD device and it worked fine. I am afraid that my card slot is broken. Any help would be appreciated.

This walk-through will help you expand the available space on your Surface to store your pictures, music, or other files by adding a microSD card.
Since microSD Cards can be swapped, it allows for almost limitless storage to be available to store files.
The installation will vary a little bit depending on what model Surface tablet you have.
I broke it down for you below.
You can click on it for a larger version.
At this point, you should be able to turn on your Surface and see the new drive in Windows Explorer.
Just make sure only the Music check box is checked as in the example then tap OK.
The same procedure works for pictures and videos or combination of the three.
Your diagram is wrong, other than that, I love this site, you have helped me in many ways.
I screwed up the picture.
Thanks for letting me know Glenn.
I know the card is good as i loaded music on it from another WINDOWS PC and that found it just fine.
This is like i said a Surface RT first gen.
It can be caused by many factors but your best bet is to contact Microsoft support to help troubleshoot.
Joanna- Got a 32GB SD card for Christmas for my RT.
The unit would not recognize the card.
I spent 45 minutes on the phone with Microsoft support.
Go to PC Settings, control panel bottom left corneropen Administrative Tools then open Computer Management, from there open Disk Management.
One of these the 32GB with about 28GB or so free space will be your card.
Format the free space as NTFS.
You might want to check the card format, I think there are a few formats that may not be compatible with Surface.
I need more memory.
Will a 128 micro SDXC card formatted as NTFS double my data capacity?
If I move a lot of my data fom the Surface drive onto the card, will access to those files will be as quick for example Word docs, Excel workbooks, etc.
The label side always faces up.
I have a surface pro and just came across this as I was doing a search.
Thanks for the information.
One quick question, is there a max size of micro sd card you can use?
When I went to the store to buy one, the salesperson said that there are limits depending on your device.
Do you happen to know how many gigs the micro sd can be for the surface pro?
Something feels a little odd about it tho.
Seems way cheap for what im memory microsd slot others sell for.
I have not used microSD much and did not want to jam it in the slot wrong.
Again, thanks for your effort to document the procedure.
Just a quick question: I am a brand new Surface 2 owner and am looking to add an SD card to my Surface.
Is there a maximum size of SD card I can use?
Would this be compatible with the Surface 2?
Thank you for any advice in advance!
Hi Conor, Thanks for reading.
Joanna- Joanna, would you help me how did you make your Surface 2 worked with the SDXC?
Seems 4 sim card slots mobile phone are card.
I am trying to install and directly record video on to my SDXC.
Surface 2 is recognized the drive.
Michelle Hi Tim, Micro sd card slot spring want to open the sd door.
It has a pin hole.
How the heck can I open it so I can install an sd card????
I have a windows 8.
Thank you Hi Kathleen, On the Surface there is no SD door.
Do you have an article that describes how to use Xbox to play music from a micro card or USB drive once you have it set up?
I micro sd card slot spring Windows Media Player!
Hi Susan, Thanks for commenting.
It may help you, check it out at Good luck.
Joanna I am having problems with space.
So adding apps is a problem.
I have nothing on my hard drive that I can see, since I use my One drive.
I am assuming the operatoring system is taking up all my space, which is a joke.
Microsoft recommended to me to add a mico sd.
Is the One drive taking up space on my hard drive?
How do I get my apps on the microsd so I can get more apps.
I have maybe 10 to 15 apps which is not a lot and if that is all I can add, then I should have purchased a iPad, because my friends have tons of apps and still tons of space to add more.
Amy, Sorry, this is a long one….
That said, I have some ideas….
From desktop mode go into Windows Explorer then find the OneDrive folder and right -click on it.
You should get a menu with a lot of choices.
To mitigate it a bit, you can drill down into your OneDrive folder and only set certain folders to online-use only.
If you need to be able to access all of your data offline then I would simply move the data from your OneDrive to the SD card.
That way all of it will be local on the Surface at all times.
Hope this helps, Tim Thanks for the suggestion.
I will try this and let you know.
I was looking thru my conversation with Microsoft and they suggested I transfer the recovery drive to the SD card.
What do you think about doing that?
Thank you for helping out more than any other site!
I got the card in and recognized Windows 8.
But when I get to the instruction to scroll down to Default Save Location instructions and tap on set, these do not appear at all.
Any chance you can help out?
But is this overly cautious?
I look for answers in your amazing blog and from what you said to Amy, I could resolve my problem.
Yeah, put the One Drive running online only, seems read article basic but I was getting nuts.
Thanks a lot for your efforts to make our life much more easy!
I have spent the last hour or more with Microsoft with no luck.
I was advised to contact card manufacturer to see if they could re-program to vhd.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
I bought a 64gb microSDXC card to add memory.
It comes formatted in exfat, but I was considering reformatting to NTFS.
Can anyone tell me if there is any real difference or if there is one I learn more here use over the other?
You might want to try using USB hard drives.
You can get them in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes.
You can use a multi-port USB hub to run more than one at a time.
There is a problem using SDXC when USB devices are plugged in.
The USB device s override the SDXC card and it does not recognize that the SDXC card is plugged in.
I think that it has something to do with the drive letter assignments.
I am investigating this some more because I want to use USB datasticks, USB drives, and the SDXC card all at the same time.
Maybe I am asking too much from my Surface Pro 3, but WIn 8.
Hi Mike, Thanks for commenting.
Let me know how it turns out for you.
Joanna One great thing micro sd card slot spring try is move your local copies of onedrive files i.
In windows explorer, right click on OneDrive, then click Properties and the Location tab, then click the Move… button and select a directory on the MicroSD.
There are a number of guides to this such as Hi, My son has a Surface Pro 3.
I need all the help I can get.
BTW, there are no photos or music installed, just bloomen games.
Hope this helps, Tim FWIW, Just installed 64GB Samsung SDXC on Surface Pro original and working well.
Thanks Joanna and Tim for the advice.
Hi, I had a pro 2 and is thinking of getting a SD card for extra space.
There are so many different kinds out there I am lost.
Thanks Nancy Hi Nancy, The differences are in speed, see Microsoft sells and recommends the ultra cards and we have tested them on our Surfaces but in theory they should all work.
They provide a lot of information about the various types of cards maybe too much info.
Mike Wernig I have ASUS VivoTab 32GB internal with a 64GB SD all running under windows rt.
SD is reading documents, but will not read music, pictures, and videos.
Does the SD need to be format NTFS or exFAT to view music, pictures, video…etc?
Flash drive working correctly and can see videos and list to music.
John, What error do you get when you try to read the files?
Tim Thanks for your help, Tim.
I followed your directions exactly and installed the card on my Surface RT.
I removed and reinserted the card and repeated the process and again selected Music from the 3 options all of which were rechecked as in the original default.
Then copied a handy Word document file to the card and opened the document with no problem, with both the Music folder and the document file showing up on the card.
link, Sorry for the late reply, we were traveling for a family emergency.
That said, it is possible that you got a defective card.
Try testing it in another device to see if it keeps dropping.
Also, it is possible to use it just like in Windows 7.
All you have to do is skip the section on moving your default locations and it SHOULD appear as a separate drive in Windows Explorer.
Hope this helps, Tim Thanks to you and others for suggestions.
The card seems fine in my desktop.
So not a totally satisfactory solution, but one I can live with for awhile.
It would be nice get it completely consistent.
Perhaps a hint that I should create a backup boot disk in case one is ever needed.
So, to others who may have the same problem, give the on switch plenty of time.
It also dissapeared for a micro sd card slot spring />I repeated the steps … without removing the physical chip.
Now, it works beautifully.
Do not give up!
Frs This guy has a pretty good idea that essentially makes your microSD drive appear to be an extension 5 sd hero slot gopro card the :C drive I have a few questions…never bought nor used an SD card before and I have an original Surface RT I purchased new, about the time the Surface 2 came out, anyway, I have not installed the upgrade operating system.
So here are my questions… 1 Is the 64 Gig SDXC card being offered by USAdiscountwarehouse.
Thanking you in advance here is their URL for this product 2 Once I install this or another 64 gig SDXC card, would it be wise to let my current operating system recognize the card, and transfer say all of my photos to it, so as to free up enough space to direct the upgrade OS to install on my Surface drive?
You might also want to look at these posts on freeing up space on Surface tablets.
They might be helpful Hope these help, Tim Tim, I have installed my microSD card successfully on my Surface Pro 3, but I have the continual dropping out problem.
To see the SD card I have micro sd card slot spring physically take it out and plug it back in.
This will work for about 5 mins, and then it drops out again.
I have the same problem with my 64G sdxc sandisk card.
I was very careful when putting my micro SD card in the slot on my surface 2, but it sounded like a piece of the micro SD card broke off in there… that pieace along the side.
Help Hi Rob, Did you actually see a piece of the SD card come off?
Or did it just sound like it did?
Thanking you in advance Hi Jake, Pretty much any USB drive should work with the Surface but we are partial to Sandisk.
As reported before, the Surface Pro often will not boot if connected in the docking station.
A nuisance, but something I can live with.
Combined with the fact that our CanaKit USB FM transmitter is apparently incompatible with Windows 8.
Hope to find a solution and retire the desktop.
We know the USB port is about 10% under-powered compared to a lot of devices and thought, hmmm… I wonder.
As for the audio adapter….
Tim Tim and Joanna, Not sure if you saw my post on my 128 GB micro SDXC card continually dropping out.
Do you think the SanDisks have a problem with this?
Sorry David, We missed your previous post.
Neither one of use have seen this issue but, we had a thought.
Does it happen when the Surface is plugged in?
We know that some folks have had USB issues and it turns out the USB port is about 10% under-powered compared to other devices so you can see where we came up with this line of thought.
If it turns out that the problem only happens on battery, then it lends credence to the theory.
Also, it means that it might be correctable under the advanced power options.
I turned on the Hyoer-V scheme, and the SD card still drops out, with or without power connected.
I have a SanDisk 64 GB micro SDXC card that keeps dropping out.
I ordered a 32GB Lexar card that I want to try, to see if I get the same behavior.
Hope this helps, Tim Thank you Tim.
I will buy a UHS I first and try someone else UHS II card if i can find one.
I have a problem.
I am trying to install a SanDisk UltraPlus 64GB MicroSDXC into my Surface 2.
It sort of clicks but then the spring pushes it out.
Does anybody else have this problem?
It is a new SanDisk.
It appears to be a problem with the Surface.
I took a 32GB Micro from my Samsung Galaxy 4 and tried to install it and got the same result.
The spring pushes it out.
How long is the warranty?
What does it cost?
You can look-up your warranty information by going to the Microsoft Surface Support Center.
We did a post on that a while back and you can find it here: If you have a Microsoft Store nearby, you can probably get help there as well.
Hope this helps, Tim I took my Surface 2 to the Microsoft store at the mall today.
They could not get it to work.
The warranty is a year and I got a replacement on the spot.
Since they are no longer making this version replacements could be difficult in the future.
I will let you know in about a week if it changes.
Thank you very much Mike for the report.
If your card has not dropped out by now, it will most likely be OK for the long haul.
It is a Samsung card.
It transfers writes 4GB in about 3 minutes, it reads pretty fast though.
I would rather have it be slower but more reliable, besides there is no difference when playing music or videos.
My web site: Tom, If the SDCard is formatted with FAT32 it might work.
Hope this helps, Tim Hi folks, A simple question for a change… I had a Surface Pro 2 and the microSD card was retained by a spring and click mechanism.
I switched to a Surface pro 3 and whe I insert te microSD card it just slide and stop at the end.
No spring, nothig to prevent the microSD card to slide out… AmI doing it the right way?
Nothing to worry about!
Francois CARON Thank you for yor reply François, What I wanted to confirm is that there is micro sd card slot spring spring retaining mechanism for the microSD card in the Surface Pro 3.
Is this what you noticed too?
François hi i want to ask what kind of micro sd can i use or is recommended to use.
Microsoft has been really vague on this subject.
A Class 10 card should work fine just make sure you stick with UHS-I cards.
Tim I did not have any luck with a card greater than 32G.
It would load the 64G card just fine but it kept disconnecting from it intermittently.
Once I stepped it back down to 32G, it works fine.
See my earlier posts.
I would go ahead and try the 128G card — I think that MS did not recommend anything larger than that — and see what happens.
I have Itunes on my surface 3 and was wondering if I can move all the music to an SD card and till work with Itunes?
Hey Tim and Joanna, I just bought my SP3 about two days ago, and realized that the micro SD slot on it is not spring-lock type like the Surface 2.
I put my working micro SD card confirmed with the Surface 2and nothing… read on some forums that this is SP3 design problem, and I should try beefing-up the card to ensure it touches the reader.
Also, use some canned air to blow out the slot on the SP3.
Hei, I have been running a 128 SD in my Surface pro 2 for several months and it works GREAT.
Thinking of upgrading to 256 if I can find one at the rite price.
I have a Surface 3, added a 64GB card but am having a hell of a time trying to get the card out.
I am a bit disappointed with the read write speed of the microSD card reader of the Surface 3.
I use ATTO disk benchmark for some reason, Crystal Disk Mark and AS SSD benchmark both crashed on the Surface 3.
However, when I put the card in a USB 3.
You can see the screen caps of the ATTO benchmark here: microSD reader ; USB 3.
Looking forward to reading your response https://fonstor.ru/card/eaton-xslot-relay-card.html />Hello everyone, I just got my Surface Pro 4.
I planning on using the micro SD card 128GB capacity as my external storage.
But before that can used casino decks cards SP4 works with 128GB SD card?
After nearly a week in Europe from the States with a suddenly non-working Surface, you helped me find the Boot Screen Power + Volume Up for 15-ish seconds.
Anything I can do about that?
Does anyone know if this is true?
If it is true, is there any point in getting a fast micro SD card for a Surface 3?

Hi normally this isnt normal there is a spring that normally ejects the sd card from your laptop or computer, but you can buy a external sd card reader to plug in your laptop instead of using the onboard sd card slot if easier.

How do I get my apps on the microsd so I can get more apps.
I have maybe 10 to 15 apps which is not a lot and if that is all I can add, then I should have purchased a iPad, because my friends have tons of apps and still tons of space to add more.
Amy, Sorry, this is a long one….
That said, I have some ideas….
From desktop mode go into Windows Explorer then find the OneDrive folder and right -click on it.
You should get a menu with a lot of choices.
To mitigate it a bit, you can drill down into your OneDrive folder and only set certain folders to online-use only.
If you need to be able to access all of your data offline then I would simply move the data from your OneDrive to the SD card.
That way all of it will be micro sd card slot spring on the Surface at all times.
Hope this helps, Tim Thanks for the suggestion.
I will try this and let you know.
I was looking thru my conversation with Microsoft and they suggested I transfer the recovery drive to the SD card.
What do you think about doing that?
Thank you for helping out more than any other site!
I got the card in and recognized Windows 8.
But when I get to the instruction to scroll down to Default Save Location instructions and tap on set, these do not appear at all.
Any chance you can help out?
But is this overly cautious?
I look for answers in your amazing blog and from what you said to Amy, I could resolve my problem.
Yeah, put the One Drive running online only, seems quite basic but I was getting nuts.
Thanks a lot for your efforts to make our life much more easy!
I have spent the last hour or more with Microsoft with no luck.
I was advised to contact card manufacturer to see if they could re-program to vhd.
Any advice would be gratefully received.
I bought a 64gb microSDXC card to add memory.
It comes formatted in exfat, but I was considering reformatting to NTFS.
Can anyone tell me if there is any real difference or if there is one I should use over the other?
You might want to try using USB hard drives.
You can get click to see more in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB sizes.
You can use a multi-port USB hub to run more than one at a time.
There is a problem using SDXC when USB devices are plugged in.
The USB device s override the SDXC card and it does not recognize that the SDXC card is plugged in.
I think that it has something to do with the drive letter assignments.
I am investigating this some more because I want to use USB datasticks, USB drives, and the SDXC card all at the same time.
Maybe I am asking too much from my Surface Pro 3, but WIn 8.
Hi Mike, Thanks for commenting.
Let me know how it turns out for you.
Joanna One great thing to try is move your local copies of onedrive files i.
In windows explorer, right click on OneDrive, then click Properties and the Location tab, then click the Move… button and select a directory on the MicroSD.
There are a number of guides to this such as Hi, My son has a Surface Pro 3.
I need all the help I can get.
BTW, there are no photos or music installed, just bloomen games.
Hope this helps, Tim FWIW, Just installed 64GB Samsung SDXC on Surface Pro original and working well.
Thanks Joanna and Tim for the advice.
Hi, I had a pro 2 and is thinking of getting a SD card for extra space.
There are so many different kinds out there I am lost.
Thanks Nancy Micro sd card slot spring Nancy, The differences are in speed, see Microsoft sells and recommends the ultra cards and we have tested them on our Surfaces but in theory they should all work.
They provide a lot of information about the various types of cards maybe too much info.
Mike Wernig I have ASUS VivoTab 32GB internal with a 64GB SD all running under windows rt.
SD is reading documents, but will not read music, pictures, and videos.
Does the SD need to be format NTFS or exFAT to view music, pictures, video…etc?
Flash drive working correctly and can see videos and list to music.
John, What error do you get when you try to read the files?
Tim Thanks for your help, Tim.
I followed your directions exactly and installed the card on my Surface RT.
I removed and reinserted the card and repeated the process and again selected Music from the 3 options all of which were rechecked as in the original default.
Then copied a handy Word document file to the card and opened the document with no problem, with both the Music folder and the document file showing up on the card.
Peter, Sorry for the late reply, we were traveling for a family emergency.
That said, it is possible that you got a defective card.
Try testing it in another device to see if it keeps dropping.
Also, it is possible to use it just like in Windows 7.
All you have to do is skip the section on moving your default locations and it SHOULD appear as a separate drive micro sd card slot spring Windows Explorer.
Hope this helps, Tim Thanks to you and others for suggestions.
The card seems fine in my desktop.
So not a totally satisfactory solution, but one I can live with for awhile.
It would be nice get it completely consistent.
Perhaps a hint that I should create a backup boot disk in case one is ever needed.
So, to others who may have the same problem, give the on switch plenty of time.
It also dissapeared for a while.
I repeated the steps … without removing the physical chip.
Now, it works beautifully.
Do not give up!
Frs This guy has a pretty good idea that essentially makes your microSD drive appear to be an extension of the :C drive I have a few questions…never bought nor used an SD card before and I have an original Surface RT I purchased new, about the time the Surface 2 came out, anyway, I have not installed the upgrade micro sd card slot spring system.
So here are my questions… 1 Is the 64 Gig SDXC card being offered by USAdiscountwarehouse.
Thanking you in advance here is their URL for this product 2 Once I install this or another 64 gig SDXC card, would it be wise to let my current operating system recognize the card, and transfer say all of my photos to it, so as to free up enough space to direct the upgrade OS to install on my Surface drive?
You might also want to look at these posts on freeing up space on Surface tablets.
They might be helpful Hope these help, Tim Tim, I have installed my microSD card successfully on my Surface Pro 3, but I have the continual dropping out problem.
To see the SD card I have to physically take it out and plug it back in.
This will work for about 5 mins, and then it drops out again.
I have the same problem with my 64G sdxc sandisk card.
I was very careful when putting my micro SD card in the slot on my surface 2, but it sounded like a piece of the micro SD card broke off in there… that pieace along the side.
Help Hi Rob, Did you actually see a piece of the SD micro sd card slot spring come off?
Or did it just sound like it did?
Thanking you in advance Hi Jake, Pretty much any USB drive should work with the Surface but we are partial to Sandisk.
As reported before, the Surface Pro often will not boot if connected in the docking station.
A nuisance, but something I can live with.
Combined with the fact that our CanaKit USB FM transmitter is apparently incompatible with Windows 8.
Hope to find a solution and retire the desktop.
We know the USB port is about 10% under-powered compared to a lot of devices and https://fonstor.ru/card/how-to-hack-a-casino-card.html, hmmm… I wonder.
As for the card phone mobile 4 sim slots adapter….
Tim Tim and Joanna, Not sure if you saw my post on my 128 GB micro SDXC card continually dropping out.
Do you think the SanDisks have a problem with this?
Sorry David, We missed your previous post.
Neither one of use have seen this issue but, we had a thought.
Does it happen when the Surface is plugged in?
We know that some folks have had USB issues and it turns out the USB port is about 10% under-powered compared to other devices so you can see where we came up with this line of thought.
If it turns out that the problem only happens on battery, then it lends credence to the theory.
Also, it means that it might be correctable under the advanced power options.
I turned on the Hyoer-V scheme, and the SD card still drops out, with or without power connected.
I have a SanDisk 64 GB micro SDXC card that keeps dropping out.
I ordered a 32GB Lexar card that I want to try, to see if I get the same behavior.
Hope this helps, Tim Thank you Tim.
I will buy a UHS I first and try someone else UHS II card if i can find one.
I have a problem.
I am trying to install a SanDisk UltraPlus 64GB MicroSDXC into my Surface 2.
It sort micro sd card slot spring clicks but then the spring pushes it out.
Does anybody else have this problem?
It is a new SanDisk.
It appears to be a problem with the Surface.
I took a 32GB Micro from my Samsung Galaxy 4 and tried to install it and got the same result.
The spring pushes it out.
How long is the warranty?
What does it cost?
You can look-up your warranty information by going to the Microsoft Surface Support Center.
We did a post on that a while back and you can find it here: If you have a Microsoft Store nearby, you can probably get help there as well.
Hope this helps, Tim I took my Surface 2 to the Microsoft store at the mall today.
They could not get it to work.
The warranty is a year and I got a replacement on the spot.
Since they are no longer making this version replacements could be difficult in the future.
I will let you know in about a week if it changes.
Thank you very much Mike for the report.
If your card has not dropped out by now, it will most likely be OK for the long haul.
It is a Samsung card.
It transfers writes 4GB in about 3 minutes, it reads pretty fast though.
I would rather have it be slower but more reliable, besides there is no difference when playing music or videos.
I hope someone understands what I need to know, thank you in advance.
My web site: Tom, If the SDCard is formatted with FAT32 it might work.
Hope this helps, Tim Hi folks, A simple question for a change… I had a Surface Pro 2 and the microSD card was retained by a spring and click mechanism.
I switched to a Surface pro 3 and whe I insert te microSD card it just slide and stop at the end.
No spring, nothig to prevent the microSD card to slide out… AmI doing it the right way?
Nothing to worry about!
Francois CARON Thank you for yor reply François, What I wanted to confirm is that there is no spring retaining mechanism for the microSD card in the Surface Pro 3.
Is this what you noticed too?
François hi i want to ask what kind of micro sd can i use or is recommended to use.
Microsoft has been really vague on this subject.
A Class 10 card should work fine just make sure you stick with UHS-I cards.
Tim I did not have any luck with a card greater than 32G.
It would load the 64G card just fine but it kept disconnecting from it intermittently.
Once I stepped it back down to 32G, it works fine.
See my earlier posts.
I would go ahead and try the 128G card — I think that MS did not recommend anything larger than that — and see what happens.
I have Itunes on my surface 3 and was wondering if I can move all the music to click SD card and till work with Itunes?
Hey Tim and Joanna, I just bought my SP3 about two days ago, and realized that the micro SD slot on it is not spring-lock type like the Surface 2.
I put my working micro SD card confirmed with the Surface 2and nothing… read on some forums that this is SP3 design problem, and I should try beefing-up the card to ensure it touches the reader.
Also, use some canned air to blow out the slot on the SP3.
Hei, I have been running a 128 SD in my Surface pro 2 for several months and it works GREAT.
Thinking of upgrading to 256 if I can find one at the rite price.
I have a Surface 3, added a 64GB card but am having a hell of a time trying to get the card out.
I am a bit disappointed with the read write speed of the microSD card reader of the Surface 3.
I use ATTO disk benchmark for some reason, Crystal Disk Mark and AS SSD benchmark both crashed on the Surface 3.
However, when I put the card in a USB 3.
You can see the screen read article of the ATTO benchmark here: microSD reader ; USB 3.
Looking forward to reading your response soon.
Hello everyone, I just got my Surface Pro 4.
I planning on using the micro SD card 128GB capacity as my external storage.
But before that can my SP4 works with 128GB SD card?
After nearly a week in Europe from the States with a suddenly non-working Surface, you helped me find the Boot Screen Power + Volume Up for 15-ish seconds.
Anything I no sd card slot on pc do about that?
Does anyone know if this is true?
If it is true, is there any point in getting a fast micro SD card for a Surface 3?

Insert the memory card with the metal contacts going into the slot first and away from you. In other words, the SD card label should be facing you when you insert it this way. You need to push the card in past flush to have the spring mechanism secure the card into place.

Anyway, the SD card did move inwards a tiny bit so somehow it was in the spring mechanism. Except that the spring mechanism wouldn't actually eject it outside of the card slot on the device. I'm a little disappointed by the quality of this slot as well. It shouldn't work about 60% of the time. It should work all the time!

I just got the RPi3 and notice that it doesn't eject my microSD card when I press into it.
All my RPi2's have a spring ejection of the microSD card as does all my microSD slots I've ever come across.
Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a change in hardware.
It works just fine, but makes it terribly hard to get the microSD card out when the RPi3 is in a case.
EDIT: I just noticed that the microSD card slot is different from those on my RPi2.
Can anyone confirm whether their microSD card slot on their RPi3 is spring loaded?
The SD card holders on the Pi3 are friction fit.
The push-push type on the Pi2 suffered frequent problems.
Thanks for the response.
I actually did find the answer online as well just as you posted.
From: "The micro SD slot that provides the storage and boot media for the Raspberry Pi now appears to have changed from a click-in and click-out design to one where the card just pushes in and is held in place by friction.
I eject the microSD card out fairly frequently when I test different installations.
In the case, the edge of the microSD card is just flush with the case surface.
In RPi2, by ejecting the microSD, it pops out and makes it easy to grab.
With the RPi3, I have to fish it out with my fingernails.
So I welcome this decision.
Indeed I like SD slot of first RPI.
I don't see any advantage of microSD for RPI's.

Contrary to popular belief, humorous signatures are allowed.

When you've crashed your B+, your A+ and your 2B one time too many by leaning on the SDCard and having it pop out.

I have the screen also but leaving my Pi2 insideI micro sd card slot spring meaning to get a slightly longer cable or maybe the existing one will work and reroute it around the slot.
If you look how they made the Astro Pi cases, the cables can be folded: I saw some one suggested using tweezers to remove the micro sdcard I would advise against that as I have destroyed one card already with that advise.
Tried the tape 'hack' to aid in the friction of the MSD card.
Still fails with rainbow screen.
Took the same MSD, placed it in the PI2 with spring ejection booted right up.
Created a new NOOB distro on two new 8GB sandisk MSD, both failed to load on the PI3, but loaded just fine on the PI2.
I even tried using my MSD card from the SWITCH they are a little thicker, about.
I have asked for an RMA to see if maybe i just got a bad board, so we will see.
Indeed it is a big step backward to switch from the spring slog type to the friction.
I already broke a microSD card that way.
I was not even being negligent.
Once inside most Raspberry Pi cases, removing an SD card becomes almost impossible.
It didn't break or anything, but once inside an SD card slot, it started melting due the pressure that had previously been applied to it, which was not even anything out of the ordinary.
Regardless the microSD card had shorted.
Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:40 amIndeed it is a big step backward to switch from the spring slog type to the friction.
There is no absolute better or worse though there may be some consensus on which is deemed this web page desirable for the majority.
It really depends on preference and use case.
I prefer spring-loaded push-push over friction push-pull.
I have struggled removing push-pull SD Cards, have had to dismantle cases to extract then, and sometimes with great difficulty because I did not want to break the card in the process.
But I have also inadvertently caused push-push SD Cards to pop out when not intended.
continue reading I haven't suffered any damage, but both choices can have failures, and both micro sd card slot spring lead to damage.
I personally have had fewer issues with push-push than push-pull but others report differently.
I don't know if failure modes or which is most likely to have problems has ever actually been quantified but pushing a push-pull to remove an SD Card should be less likely to cause damage than pulling a push-push.
That is the most common damage I have seen done to push-push sockets.
I would therefore suggest push-push is the best choice only when it can be guaranteed that a pull attempt cannot be made, a push-pull best when it cannot.
In that respect the friction fit push-pull choice would seem right for a Pi.
If you prefer a push-push micro sd card slot spring uSD card socket why not simply use one of these Also 'protects' your RPi's socket from wear-out in case you have to remove the card cards marked casino often.
Durability of a uSD card socket is in a range of 10k cycles Display posts from previous: Sort by.

I have a 64Gb MicroSD card that reads just fine on the SP2, but doesn't seem to want to recognize on the SP3. I'm putting the card into the slot, but there's no "click" or other indication it's fully in. The back edge of the card lines up just about where the card slot opening begins, but there seems to be no way to push the card in further.
