Surface-Pro 4-

Software giant Microsoft rolled out a fresh update for the Surface Pro 3 devices running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. More specifically, it updated the driver for the Realtek USB 3.0 Card Reader, which enables card slot compatibility for the Windows 10 Creators Update.

The new driver on the Update page now displays Realtek USB 3.0 Card Reader (10.0.14393.31230). The Surface Pro 3 launched in 2014 and received positive responses from customers and critics. Somehow, the Surface Pro 3 release provided Microsoft a relief from a potential embarrassment that was brewing prior to the launch.

The driver update is available for Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 users only. Currently, 27.4% of all Surface users now use the Surface Pro 3, which trails the Surface Pro 4 at 34.4%. You can now download the driver update from the Surface Pro 3 download center.
