Well this has happened to many people before, me being one of them.
I was looking for ideas on the internet and a VERY clever person said to get a thin piece of card and put sticky tape onto it in a circle so its double sided and slide it in so that the memory card can come out! BRILLIANT!! I thought it wouldn't be strong enough, but it was, saved my life. Hopefully it can save yours. xo

This post was brilliant. I had this issue. I took a piece of paper and stuck glue to it on 2 ends and pushed it in the memory slot such that the glue is inwards and touching both sides of the card. I left itin there for 2 minutes and then pulled the card out. It came out in a jiffy.

SOURCE: Picture card stuck in slot upside down

Pry out with a needle like tool from the side: half mm each time. Pry from the left side (thin side) a little bit then on the right, you may need a lot patience until you pull it out. You would pull much better if you had some surgical suturing forceps with the tiny teeth on them.

My memory card won't lock in place therefore I get a "no memory" card message.


Unfortunately it sounds like the locking clip inside the SD card slot is broken or some how stuck? If you can try to look inside the SD card slot in the camera with a flash light, there should be a small clip like plastic to the left sticking out. That is what locks the SD card in place. See if anything is stuck in between like debris, you might gently poke that clip and see if it is stuck? That is what locks the SD card in place, if it is broken or missing, that will require some work to replace the plastic lock.

My fujifilm finepix jx 300 says protect card even after sliding the switch on memory card to unlock


check if in the card slot is any debris. You could try to clean the contacts of the xD memory card with a dry cloth. Place the card on a flat underground and press firmly on the cloth. Don't press without a flat underground, because you could easy break the card.
It also could be some of your pictures are protected. You have to unprotect the pictures first.

How to remove/load sd card stuck in Huawai M860


The SD memory card slot is spring loaded, to insert the memory card insert the card into the SD memory slot with the SD card contacts going in first and gently push it in until it locks in place. NOTE if the SD card does not slide into the slot easily then the SD memory card has been inserted back to front, turn the SD card around and insert it again.
To remove an installed SD memory card, press the SD memory card and it will pop out slightly then you can then pull out the SD memory card.

As I am scrolling through the pictures on the camera, a "read error"message comes up. This is occuring with all of the memory chips - even the new ones so I do not think it is a chip problem. Can you offer...


you have two slots for memory cards .. one for XD and one for CF .. if you have trouble with one slot then you can try the other type card ..

if you are using a CF card or micro drive .. then look into the slot where they normally go .. look for bent or missing pins .. some CF memory cards don't have much of a "lead in taper" on their connector .. sometimes they will snag a pin and bend it, push it out of place or break it ... sometimes you can straighten it but replacing a broken pin is a big job .. usually the whole connector will be replaced if its sent in for repair .. if you have trouble with the CF slot you can instead use a XD memory card .. or visa versa .. the little LED flashlights are ideal for looking into the memory slot...
make sure you format any new memory cards in the camera before use .. that should pick up any problems and makes sure the card is compatable with the system ..

Xsi rebel will not read or reformat memory card


You need to have a look at the slot where the memory card goes in. Using a light, look down in the slot at the pins the match up to the card. There may be one or more bent or broken. If the pins are damaged, then it would be a major repair. Usually once they have bent, trying to straighten them back causes them to break off.

Unable to upload pictures from memory card to computer


Most laptops that have a memory card reader will only read these types of cards, without needing an adaptor: -SD card -MMC card -Sony Memory Stick or Memory Stick Pro cards -XD cards
However, you have a MS Pro Duo card, although it fits into the card reader slot, the card is a lot thinner than what's expected, so the laptop won't be able to read it.
You need to put the Pro Duo card into the stanard size MS Pro caard adaptor. See attached image.
Hope this helps.

Problem


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
