Put my sd card into sd card slot of a asus 51r laptop computer and now I am unable to eject it. There was an insert in there before I inserted card. I took that out and inserted card. Now nothing I do will get it out. Any assistance would be great.

Re: sd card jammed in sd card slot
This may sound bad, but I promise it isn't. Have you tried removing the SD card with a small pair of needle nose pliers or even some twizzers? It sounds like the spring mechanism failed, so your only solution now is to pull it straight out, a little force and it should come right out. There are no pins to bend on an SD card.

You will insert the SD card into the SD card slot on your device then you will power on the device and tap settings from the main menu click free format and then pick mount SD card when reformatting has completed.
For you to put an SD card into your laptop, you have to possess a SD card converter. Normally, it comes with the card if you bought it new but if there is none, you have to purchase one. When you get the converter, you can slot your SD card into it and then put the converter into your laptop. Hope this solution helped you?

No you cant open the reader with the keyboard. You have to use it manually only. Actually you do not have to open any because card reader has ony slots into which you insert the cards. And Dell provides dummy plastic cards with the laptops. Just hold it and pull it out. Then insert your actual card. All cards have different sizez and so ar the slots of the card reader.
There should be 5 slots. Near each slot has the trademark of the card that the slot is for. If you are unable to identify the trademarks or there aren't any ways of finding which slot is which, then try each slot. Do not force your SD card into the slot. There should be only one slot that is the perfect fit for the SD card. Just slightly change the angle of the SD card until it slides in. The SD card has little to no extra room so it will take a little while to get the SD card in. Also the slot is spring loaded so you should here a click when it is in correctly.
If you have trouble, just keep trying and don't force it in. Trust me that it will fit if it is the right slot. Sometimes I get my SD card into my Wii or laptop in under a minute and sometime I have to mess with it for over 5 minutes (the angle of the stand for the Wii doesn't help at all).
Once you get the SD card in correctly, it will show up as a drive in "My Computer" but Windows XP and Vista have normal alerts with a "new hardware found" tone. Think of it as an USB flash drive that is smaller and goes into a specific slot.
When you are done, just push the SD card in and the slot should eject the card so you can pull it out.
