Look at the bottom of the memory card slot, you probably bent one or more of the contactor pins. Use a small screwdriver and carefully try to straight the bent pin then carefully put the memory card back in. From now on, use a USB cable for downloading your pictures and don't pull the card out anymore as the pin is probably weaker than before and can break. Good luck

Card reader not working?!


Have you tried another memory card?

Some devices can read SD but not SDHC. If your memory card is 1 or 2 gig, it's SD, if it's larger, it's SDHC which is not backwards compatible with SD.

Based on the age of the PSC 1350, I would bet it's a SD-only device.

My playstation keeps saying to put in a memory card.. even though I have done


did you try reading the memory card without any game discs put in via the ps2 menu?

is your memory card working properly? could be a corrupted memory card or a faulty memory card slot.
try putting a friend's memory card on that same slot.
if it works... then your memory card is gone bad...
if it doesnt work...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

else try putting your memory card in your friend's ps2, see if that ps2 reads your memory card. if it does...then your memory card slot has gone bad.

Canon power shot sx 100 reads card locked


SD Memory cards have a tiny switch on the edge that marks the memory card as read only and prevents any writes. If you get the message "Card locked!" when you turn the camera on then turn the camera off, eject the SD card. With the card facing you (metal contacts facing away) the switch is on the left hand edge, slide towards the top of the card to make the card read/write again.

I put a game cube game in to the wii and it says to insert a memory card into slot A so i put a 128mb memory card into slot A andi turn the wii on and it says no memory card found in slot A WHY?


It might be talking about the GameCube memory card slots, not the SD card slots. There should be a door on the top/left side of the WII. See if it's talking abou that.

Memory Card Error


Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again.

If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.
