Same thing happened here. Hubby was able to remove memory card by inserting a VERY small screwdriver under the memory card and catching on an indentation. He was then able to remove the disk from the slot.

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)

Can not remove sd card from storage expansion slot


Push the card in just a bit until it clicks, then it should release unless it is stuck. Sometimes this happens with new SD cards until they are inserted and ejected a few times.

Inserting media card into toshiba laptop


Hi,
In the card slot if u are inserting a mmc card it will be inserted directly and after inserting u will find a new drive in my computer and on opening that u will be finding the data and to transfer the data directly right click on the data and send to drive name allottedto card reader.
If u rae using a micro SD card then u will have to use an adaptor which will convert micro sd card to the MMC size.

Multi-media card reader problem


Try pushing in on the card until it clicks, and springs back out. If it is not that type of slot, then pull the card out using a pair of needle nosed plyers (since you obviously can't pull it out by hand). If it looks to require too much force, then you might want to try taking out the screws on the back of the laptop to reveal the card slot, there is an obstruction that is preventing the card from being removed. I had an issue with an SD card getting stuck, and I pulled it, but the pins stayed inside, so use caution & be gentle.

Good luck!

Stuck


Hi,

I understand that now the Multimedia card is struck in the Media card reader of your notebook and you would like to know how to remove it.

Let me explain, there is no separate procedure to remove the card from the card reader.

Just insert and pull out, if it is not comming out when you pull gently, then you need technician help to remove it.

You need to contact local service center.

Memory stick stuck in the slot


Turn OFF the laptop and remove the battery. Try using a Paperclip or if you dare, open the laptop and you can get the memory card easier that way.

Digital camera sd card stuck in laptop


Hi...
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...
