does usb cable transfer from pc to surface rt work

Can’t seem to get an answer to simple question; can I make an A to A usb transfer between my win 7 pc and my surface rt tablet? Flash drives work fine, so I don’t see why not, but I’m not ordering a cable unless I know it works…


Hi Daniel,

Thanks for asking ahead! No, Microsoft does not have support for Windows Easy Transfer using Easy Transfer Cables in Windows RT (the Surface RT).

They ship a limited set of drivers for the Surface RT, and don’t allow adding devices drivers later.

Hope that helps avoid any frustration!
