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.

How to access lexar memory card without loker,my memory card loker has been breaked

If it's still a usable card, I would suggest just placing it back into your camera and then connecting it via USB cord.

If that doesn't work, check if your computer has a slot for SD cards. If it does, try placing the card in one of the slots gently.

I have tried solution no.1 but the paper was stuck with the memory card. how to take it out. HELP.!

Solution #1...? Anyway, I'm guessing that your problem is that some paper is stuck in your card slot. Lol. I'm going to assume the paper is wadded up. Most tweezers wouldn't fit in a memory card slot, so use something small and pointy(i suggest a toothpick; one of the sturdy ones, not the cheap ones that break like paper matches) to fish it out. Don't use anything metal. you might damage the contacts. BE CAREFUL.

I have 2 Sony PS2 memory cards but neither will save data at breaks in games. Am I doing something wrong ? I am new to gaming and have followed instructions without success. Help!!!

It could be that they were damaged in someway or the memory slot in the PS2 is broken. I've been able to fix mine by blowing into both openings, the slot and the card, but if that doesn't work, check the game it self to see. Usually the game will say something like "Saving Data-Please Do Not Turn Off System Or Remove Memory Card". If it isn't saying that, it probably hasn't saved at all.

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.

The sd card is stuck in the slot and wont come out

You tried to put a Sony Memory Stick into an SD slot? It will probably need as much force to pull it out as it took to jam it in there!

I'd power off, and start with tweezers... if that doesn't work... i'd break out the needle-nose pliers. You may break the reader while trying this... but a card reader is all of $10-20... and you're kinda stuck anyway. ;o)

Memory card slot

The easiest thing to do would probably be to pop in to your local phone store (any), briefly explain the problem and ask them to do it - the chances are its just stiff, but atleast if you get them to do it (for free) if it breaks you can ask them for a free replacement! Sneaky but maybe your easiest option, without seeing a photo.
