Question about Computers & Internet
How can I get my sd card out of my computer?
I had the same problem, read some of the proposed solutions and came up with one that worked for me! Here it is: (1) cut a piece of duct tape that is about half the width of the slot and a couple of inches long (2) use a small flat head screwdriver and depress the card down, so that a small gap is created above the card (3) take a second small flat head screwdriver and force the tape into the gap above the card - adhesive side towards card (4) continue to work the tape into the gap so that it covers as much of the card as possible (5) remove the screwdrivers and gently pull on the tape until the card is removed!

I used two toothpicks and moved the card slowly from side to side until it was far enough out to grasp it with tweezers

[Use] a piece of thick paper cut into a long rectangle finger. I slide
this underneath the card with the other end sticking out. You can
then angle your laptop until it just slides out. If that doesn't work
you can use a bit of sticky tape. Hold one end and try to stick the top
of the MS then gently pull out (the other piece of paper is still

Put your Memory Duo adapter in(backwards so that the spot where the chip normally goes is in the slot) and then turn the laptop so that the card reader is facing the ground and then pull the adapter out and the sd card should come right out with it. This can sometimes take multiple attempts. I got mine stuck today and got it out using this.

I had the same problem and i found this forum. What i did was put some rubber solution on the inner side of a victorinox knife's forceps. Left that for a day to dry. This created a good friction which otherwise would slip always. Then used it to pull the card out. It worked very well.

1. Find a playing card, or any kind of card (maybe even paper) and rip it or cut it to the size where it'll fit into the sd slot, and a size where it is the same size as or bigger than the sd card stuck in there. 2. slide the playing card underneath the stuck sd card and wiggle it out, slowly pulling the playing card out. 3. The sd card will pull out with the playing card. (May have to repeat if it pushes back accidentally but really quick, easy, and non-damaging)

If you already have the card stuck in the computer, there is a pair of unusual tweezers that I had in my pc repair kit. they look like a cross between tweezers and staple removers. they are wide mouth so you can stick them down the sides of widest point of the card. The card has some little grooves that you tweeze and pull it out. (the first attempt i used a pair of fish bone removing tweezers but it was tricky)
hopefully you can see a picture attached
Before you insert the card again, stick some sellotape folded over the end, so you can just pull it out.

For A Toshiba Satellite Pro with a PSP card stuck inside the best solution was two chopsticks stuck down either side o the card and just gently use them to pull it up, you'll need a friend to hold a torch or something for you. Takes patience but I managed to get it out in about five minutes.

I have the same problem. I barely shoved the card in the slot, and it got stuck. I tried shaking the computer, but nothing came out. I'm really mad about. I can actually see it. I don't know. PLEASE HELP!

Remember that the SD card has a little slot at the center we'll use that to retrieve the card. First, find a "medium safety pin" and straightened it and on the sharp edge, use a plier to make a little hook... Use that to pull it out....
Use an extended card holder to insert the SD card because the design is for the mini stick SD card...
Goodluck... happy Fixya...

It appears to be blocked, what you have to do is push it in (blocked door) then it springs the cover off .
