    My Mom just removed the SD card wonderfully with two toothpicks on either side! One person can prop the computer with a flashlight while the other works the toothpicks. Try this before going with the super-glue method.

    Re: Stuck Sony memory card in SD card slot on laptop...

    well, i'm one of the idiots that also got a memory stick pro duo stuck in my laptop's card reader, and wanted to thank this thread for being open. however i did not use any of the solutions posted, i believe this thread helped me with thinking of other possible solutions.

    at first i tried using two toothpicks as mini chopsticks to pry the bastard out, but that ended up pushing the card in further. i then contemplated with the different options in this topic, while looking around the house for things to use and i thought of my master plan to free my laptop of the dastardly memory card:

    i saw tape.

    haha

    i then proceeded to put tape on one toothpick, making a mini flag. i stuck that into the card reader, used the second toothpick to flatten the tape onto the memory card and from there it was a piece of cake.

    thanks again for the thread. good luck to others that find themselves in this dilemma ^^

    Talking Re: Stuck Sony memory card in SD card slot on laptop...

    again....i registered just to contribute to this.
    I used a playing card about 3/4 the size of the slot...i'm sure any card would work or paper, and slid it underneath the stuck sd card, then wiggled the playing card and the sd card came out with it. had to go back and forth a few times, but literally finished in 30 seconds. this is the solution somebody else (sorry i can't remember username) posted i think, and it WORKS. honestly don't do superglue, hairpins, etc, cause of the risk of damaging the sd card reader. luckily mine is still okay after i did all that, but so frustrating to have spent all day trying different methods, and this so simple and easy.

    This worked for me. I bended slot cover so much that it fitted. The edge was sharp in the end so it took a good grip and I pulled it easy out. Be sure to put it on right side, there is copper wires sicking up on one side.

    Thanks for the tip

    then just pull it out. one minor glitch is that it won't come out fully so you might need to trap the memory card about half of the depth of the hair clip.

    i hope this makes sense.
    THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH! ^.^ I tried just about everything, the meta tools, paper clips, even the keychain card thing. Thankfully the clip worked with the first try. <3

    Re: Stuck Sony memory card in SD card slot on laptop...

    I too have registered to say thanks for all the suggestions and thankfully not the only one who did this silly thing!

    I would recommend to using strips of cardboard one thicker than the other and inserting between them and then slowly wiggling out while holding it upside down. Unfortunately I tried the nail file and may have become to aggressive so my slot is now damaged but I always had an adapter so thats the good news and my card is useable!

    Good luck to everyone else who comes across this!
