Plastic stuck in 5-in-1 Card Reader

I have an Acer Aspire laptop, model 5516-5474. It's been a good little thing for the most part - haven't had much trouble with it. However, my card reader has a piece of plastic lodged in it. It came this way, and I can't seem to remove it. When I push the piece of plastic, it goes in a little, and when I remove my finger, it springs back out. I don't understand why it's there. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

Normally this is a dummy card to prevent trash from getting in the slot. you should be able to push all the way in and when it pops back out remove it. (just like a sd card)

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

No, just insert the Memory Card in the 5-in-1 Card Reader slot. The Memory Card will appear on the "My Computer" or "Computer" window. Click on that to open the contents of the Memory Card.


Good Luck!!!!!!

Your card reader on your computer isn't capable of reading SDHC cards. You have to use a card reader approved for SDHC use.
