If the card is jammed in the slot, you may damaged the card removing it but will be better then not being able to use the functions of the card reader.
You will need to find a Forceps or better known as roach clip to remove the card from reader. Again the card may be damaged as the shell is a plastic base and the Forceps is metal.
Or you may want to stop at your local radio shack and see if they have a thin long nose pliers.
Hope this has helped you in this repair.

If it s stuck ..it means that its hooked on something ...use something sharp ..like a needle to try to release any lock or ...snap that it might have and would not work cause of the card...you will have probably to force it a little ...after that if the card is stuck inside...use a pincers( tweezers like ) instrument and get it out ...see that it also might be hooked into some points that normaly lock the card in place ...use a needle too
keep in mind that the lock is on the side that the door opens...there you have to insert the sharp object for to unlock

Where do i stick my sd with adapter on my dell inspiron 1545


Most portable SD stick readers come with a USB connection so you just stick it into any spare USB port (see USB adaptor pic).
If you have an SD to SD adaptor that fits a small SD card into a larger SD card holder (see SD adaptor pic) then you also need one of the SD stick readers (above)

Need to know how and where to insert sd card


There are usually 2 places that an sd-card can be inserted in a digital camera - Inside near the battery under the door, or a separate flap on the bottom of the camera labeled SD.
  • If there isn't a slot specifically for an SD-card on the bottom of your camera, open the battery door.
Try and locate a very thin rectangular ****. Once you have found the slot, take your sd card and push it inside the slot until you hear a click, that means it's securely in place.

Card slot location on acer 5740-5255? I tried to insert at front of laptop but too big. Do I need an adapter? I am using Scan Disc pro Que


I can't find a Scan Disc pro Que, but I can find a Sandisk Pro Duo, which is a micro SD card.

You will need either an adaptor or a USB cable which can connect the device which uses the card to you laptop.

There are a couple of types of adaptor, one basically converts the micro card to and looks like an ordinary SD card. The other looks like a USB flash drive which you slot the micro card into.

Really cheap on Ebay. Just search for a Micro SD card adaptor.

How can you import pictures in inbox on cell phone to the microchip SD 2gb inserted in phone?


Micro SD cards for cell phones are now costing less and are holding more memory. 4GB SD cards can hold an estimated 1000 songs, over 13,000 images, or 22 hours of video individually. 2GB memory cards hold roughly half those estimates and 8GB SD cards would hold double. So if your cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif has a SD card slot learn how to utilize this expandable memory option on your device. Follow these steps and you will soon be enjoying your music, pictures, and video on your phone!
  1. Insert your SD memory card adaptor (with micro SD card inserted) into your SD Card drive on your computer. This should open a "Secure Digital Storage Device" or similar window. If not, go to "My Computer" to locate your SD card and open it.
  2. Step 2 To transfer picture files to your SD memory card, open the folder or file that your pictures are stored on. Simply click and drag a file or multiple files and drop them into your SD Card window or folder. You can also copy a picture and then paste it to the SD Card.
  3. Step 3 To transfer music files to your SD memory card, open your "My Music" folder. Select the folder where you are going to get the music from (Itunes, Yahoo Music...). Click, drag, and drop the files into the SD Card window or copy and paste them in.
  4. Step 4 To transfer video files to your SD memory card, open your "My Videos" folder. Select the folder where you are going to get the video from. Click, drag, and drop the files into the SD Card window or copy and paste them in.
  5. Step 5 Take out the SD memory card adaptor from its drive. Remove the Micro SD card (small chip for your phone) and insert it into the SD Card drive on your Blackberry, IPhone, or other compatible cell phone.
  6. Step 6 Go to your media, picture, or music folder in your cell phonesmag-glass_10x10.gif menu. Select which item you are looking for and your files will appear!

How shall i put in a kingston 1gb micro sd in a All in 1 card reader


You should have 2 components with your micro SD card. The card, a small adaptor and a large adaptor. All you need to do is see what size adaptor your read needs. You place the card in the tiny slot in the adaptor and slide it in the reader. The computer will find the micro SD and install the driver to read it. Then it will give you an option to open the files. That is how 99% of them work.

What does no card mean? Thank you.


"No card" means that either
  1. You have not inserted a memory card
  2. The memory card is not formatted, or
  3. The memory card is damaged and therefore can't be read by the camera.
How to insert the memory card:
  1. Open the camera’s battery door by sliding it downwards.
  2. Insert the SD card into the slot as shown inside the camera’s battery compartment. The SD card can only be inserted one way.
  3. Press the SD card completely into the camera and then close the door. Open the door and press on the memory card if you wish to remove it.
Note: There is only one way to insert the SD memory card into the slot. Do not force the card into the slot. This may damage both the camera and the SD memory card.

Before you can use the card, it has to be formatted:
  1. Insert the memory card into your camera as described above.
  2. Turn the camera on by pressing the power button.
  3. Use the multi-select button to select the "SET" option.
  4. Press the right arrow button to set "System" then press down key to select "Format".
  5. The default option is ‘Format’. Select this option by pressing the OK button.
  6. Select "Yes" to format the card.
If all this does not work it might be that your SD card is damaged. Try to replace it with another one. If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
