Media Center to see micro SDXC as part of Media Library?

OKAY. I have a Surface Pro with 128 GB storage so I want to conserve space by using my 64 GB micro SDXC card which is seen as a removeable drive. It is so small and sticks into the pro to where you can't see it. It does not stick out so I just leave it in there all the time. How would I get Media Center to see that as part of my Media Library?

You can add Video folders on the micro SDXC to your Video's Library in Windows 8.

Then when you set up Media Center browse to the Library where the video files reside and you will then be able to play all of the video files which reside in your Video's Library from Media Center.

Shawn's tutorial on adding folders or drives to the Library's should be helpful. :)

SDXC Removeable Media in Media Center

Well, that document is good but Media Center will not accept a Removeable Drive. However, with Disk Management I can define a C:\SDXC folder as a Drive without the Removeable Drive attribute.

Now, it turns out that the video's I want to play are .ISO files and it looks like WIN 8 will automatically "Mount" them as virtual drives. I still have trouble seeing those drives as legitimate drives for Media Center. Maybe the document you provided will help. THANKS for your response!
