I just bought a Kingston SD/512-S 512 MB memory card. It went into the camera with no problems and records pictures properly, but it only pops out about 1/8" - 1/4" or so. I can't pull it out and I don't want to force it. The 16 meg Canon card that came with the camera appears to be much thinner than the Kingston. Kingston's web site says that this card is compatible with my A520. Does anyone know what brand SD card will REALLY work? Any suggestions? How can I remove the Kingston card? Thanks in advance.
There are only two types of SD cards. MiniSD and SD. No matter what brand of SD card you buy they are all the same size and compatibility and same thing goes for the MiniSD cards no matter what brand MiniSD card you buy they are all the same size and compatibility. It is the wonders of standardization, anyone that uses the SD or MiniSD name they must produce all their cards to certain specs. I know you did not buy a SD card and try to put it into a MiniSD slot, that is impossible (unless you used a hammer). The card just got stuck, or maybe you put the card in the wrong slot? My camera's ION battery looks close to my SD card. Anyway your going to have to remove it and you are going to have to use force if needed. I would use needle nose pliers (just don't squeeze THAT hard) use just enough force to pull it out and try not to wiggle it out.
Check if there is anything in the way. It could be a simple grain of sand. A corner of the sticker could also be the problem, maybe a corner of it got loose and was caught in something.
Some SD cards comes with the Brand name sticker slightly coroked, just somehow pull out the card and then remove the stcker before putting it again
