Make sure that you insert the SD card in the correct orientation. If not, it will not lock into place. The SD card is push in to insert and push again to eject.

There is a small diagram showing the correct way to insert the card just below the left hand side of the slot.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860


The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

I know this sounds odd, but my MEMORY card is stuck in my Nokia 5230 Nuron. I know the difference between the memory card and the SIM card. I followed the instructions in the booklet and simply push the...


I had a similar problem with a high capacity SD card in my digital camera. You'll need to use a tweezers to get it out the first several times and after that it should loosen up through wear on the plastic casing of the memory card (this is normal and will not hurt the card). Before removing the card with the tweezers nake sure to push the card so it is in "remove" or out position so it will be ready to re-insert.

The camera works fine without a card in, but when the memory card is put in it doesnt. i changed the card and no difference. PLEEASE HELP


The cause and solution may include one of the following:
  1. The card may not be certified SD. Please purchase a certified SD memory card. For example: Sandisk, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc.
  2. The card may be corrupt. Reformat the memory card.
    CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
  3. The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.

I have a macbook and i dont see anywhere to insert a memory chip ?


The memory cards are inserted into 2 slots that can be accessed by removing the battery, and removing the 3 screws from the L-shaped metal cover. The screws won't fall out of the cover, so no worries about losing them. Once the cover is off, there are 2 slots with release levers... carefully push the lever and the existing memory card will release. Insert in same manner. If no cards, simply insert the card until the lever seats.

How do I download my camera's memory card onto my acer extensa


The "odd shaped port" you are referring to is most likely:

The Express Card slot (replacing the slot known as “PC-Card” replacing the slot formerly known as “PCMCIA”) are the biggest standard slot on a laptop designed to handle stuff like wireless cellular modems with antenna and micro hard drives. Most people won’t ever use this slot, but it’s a lot faster than it’s old relatives now that it connects directly to PCI-Express. From: www.geek.com

Do NOT put your memory card from your computer into that slot. Since you have indicated that the USB cable connector option will not work, you will have to go out and buy a memory card reader that is compatible with you memory card. They are relatively inexpensive and easy to find at most electronics stores. Plug in the card reader (USB) and seat in your memory card and the OS of your laptop should detect the card and allow you to download the pictures.

Hope this helps!
