Adding MUSIC from my SD card to the Music Library on Surface RT

The solution for this issue depends on which Windows RT version you are using, so, check the respective solution for both Windows RT and Windows 8.1 RT Preview versions


"Library" item on File Explorer is gone on Windows 8.1 RT Preview and there's no "manage" feature on File Explorer to add folders to your Music, Video and Photo Files, but now it is much easier to make it work.

On File Explorer, click with the right mouse button or touch and hold on each of your Music, Video, Photo and Documents folders on your SD Card and choose "Include on Library" to add to the respective library. After some time, the files will be available on all media apps.

Have you tried to play music from your SD card on your Surface RT ??? For some reason, Surface RT doesn't recognize the SD Card as a disk drive, but as a removable media and removable media can't be added on media library on Surface RT. ...bad...isn't it ?

You can add music from a Pen Drive on your USB, you can also add music from your network (drives from other computers), and you can also add music from external disk drives connected on your Surface USB...

...but as I already said, you can't add music from your SD Card. When you go to the file explorer, managing your library and you try to add the SD card, you get an error message saying it's not possible, but...

...there's a SOLUTION !!!

If you don't want to wait for the upcoming Windows 8.1, that will fix this problem, click on the link below and follow the steps. It's easy and I did it in less than 2 minutes.
