I inserted a wrong memory card( Digital Camera Card) in the slot and since this card is a small one, the whole card went inside and I am unable to remove it. How can I get this thing out. Can I remove the whole drive?

Two different memory card slots is a feature normally found on professional cameras. Anyway I'm including a picture and the only thing I can think of is that the card is the wrong way around. There are very small guides along the side that will forbid it from loading backwards. Problem is if you force it you could damage the guides OR the pins at the bottom, take a look at the picture.

The problem may be that the memory card is defective - or more likely that the card is "locked" or "protected" You can check for this by removing the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look
along the left edge of the card. Find a small tab and slide it forward
(to the unlock position) and carefully slip the card back into the
camera and try again. If it still won't store images on the card, carefully remove the
card to see if the tab has moved back to the locked position. It is possible that if the tab is moved when inserting the card, it could just as easily be moved back when removing, too.
Either way, if
the tab is moving (or suspected to be be moving) to the locked position during the insertion and / or withdrawal process,
you could place a small amount of tape along the card edge - over the
tab - and carefully insert the card again. You might have to remove
some tape to allow the card to fit into to slot, depending how much room there is. If you never lock the
card (I never do); you could put a very small drop of super glue on the tab to hold
it in place. Wait for the glue to set completely before inserting into
the camera and try again.
If all else fails, you might try again with a different card.
This happens most of the time with digital camera and mobile phones, if you try to insert the memory card in a wrong direction. Before inserting your memory card, look into the slot hole and see the position of contact terminals and insert your card in such way that the card comes with contact with the terminals inside the slot. If your card already got struck into the slot, try removing it by pulling out using a small nose plier. Also try with another memory card of similar type to detect any problem due to your memory card. I hope this will help you out.
The cause and solution may include one of the following:
The card may not be certified SD or MMC. Purchase a certified SD or MMC memory card.
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.
The card is not fully inserted in the camera. Turn off the camera, insert a card into the slot, then push to seat it.
