Ejecting Memory Stick Pro Duo card out of notebook card reader

I just got an Acer Aspire AS5720Z notebook.
It has a 5-in-1 card reader in it.
My memory Stick Pro Duo card is extremely small. The manual says the card reader will read it. There is NO eject button that I can see. I'm afraid to put the card in without knowing how to eject it.

How do you EJECT the card from the card reader?
Is there a software eject like on a MAC?

Please advise.

Thanks,

David

    A regular size SD card also goes into my HP laptop almost all the way with not enought sticking out to grab it and pull. I cannot figure out how to eject it. Any suggestions?

    I actually put in the micro card without the adapter into my card reader. It was a mistake obviously.
    Its too far in now, and I can't find any way to remove it. Suggestions?

    With a regular sized card, you just have to push it in a little and that makes it pop out.

I know something  is broken but what??

Hi, the memory Stick Pro Duo card is (micro), half size as you have noticed you need to buy an SD adapter card. You put your Pro Duo card into the SD card & than put it into your card reader.
Once you see the SD adapter card on the web site you'll understand. You can buy this at a local BestBuy. Most web sites sell the adapter as a combo, you'll get a micro card & adapter.

A piece of tape on the end of the card folded over on itself works pretty well, and doesn't protrude too badly off the side of the card.Ejecting Memory Stick Pro Duo card out of notebook - c7f602f.jpg
Just some simple scotch tape.

I have the same problem on my HP dv6449us. The 5-in-1 media reader does not handle memory stick pro duo. I cannot get it to seat properly in the slot; the memory stick pro seems too big. I tried to insert it toward the top or the bottom, but all I got was the blue led blinking for a few seconds but no mounting from XP. If I insert it too far, then the only way to get it out is using a pair of tweezers. HP's manual seems simple enough. It says you gently push it in until it seats. Well, it never seats! And it certainly can get stuck if you don't have a tweezers. To this day (I've had this laptop for almost 3 years), I have only gotten the memory stick pro duo to work once. I was trying to pull it out with tweezers and it accidentally made the right contacts with the pins and XP recognized it and mounted it. I was able to copy photos and format the memory stick pro duo. But that was the only time and I had to use tweezers to get it out. Since then I have never been able to duplicate this. If a SD adapter is required, then this is news to me. HP certainly did not make this clear.

This is because HP does not have any tested information of XP on your Notebook, and one more thing is that HP has not yet released all the drivers of XP for your Notebook

Won t recognize sd card


It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards.
The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters.
You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

My acer computer cannot read the stick duo pro memory card (4gb).


Not all card readers can cope with Memory Sticks of that large a capacity. I suggest that you buy a cheap external card reader which specifically states that it can handle Memory Stick Pro Duo of at least 4GB capacity.

I have a sandisc memory stick pro duo 4gb and it is too small to fit in the memory card slot of my laptop which is an acer aspire 7220 series. please help x


Hi there!
Simply insert the card in it's adapter, then insert it into the memory slot.
However you can buy yourself an external USB card Reader supporting your pro duo card.
Please rate this advice as it's very important for us.
Good luck friend!
