    +1 to the above!

    Its one of those threads I've thought about closing, but clearly it is a Sony problem! So it stays open and people find it useful!

    And again echoing watercooled - welcome to HEXUS! Enjoy!

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

    Here is a simple way to remove the card. Take a needle end lower the card in order to get a gap over it.

    Take a Post-it half-inch flag. It's a small sticker to indicate a place to sign on a document.

    Insert this tiny sticker above the card at the top. Release the needle on order to let the post-it flag stick to the card. Pull gently. It will come out easily. If it stops half way, like it did for me. re install the post-it and pull again.

    I did this in one minute after having tried for hours with all kind of instruments.

    It is so simple and not destructive. I wish I had thought of this at the beginning, I would have saved one hour + frustration. I also broke one of the small metal wires that help holding the card in place, But it did not affect the use of the SD cards.

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

    I had the same problem(), and I didn't want to do anything too dangerous to my laptop, or SD card, or get up too far and get the right sized screw drivers, although I don't think I have any small headed flat screwdrivers.(I probably do, but I'm not sure.) And, I am lazy. Instead, I just got a paperclip. First, I untwisted the paper clip so it was one straight line. Next, I inserted it to the right(It doesnt matter if it's the left or right.)side of my SD card slot. I bent the paperclip sideways and the SD card started coming out.

    Thank you for this!!! I got two tiny flat head screwdrivers (or you can try the tiny nail filer in a nail clipper..that works just as well!) and got it out as quickly as I stupidly put it in! I never tried this method before for getting my pictures..next thing I know my card was too small for the slot. Never again .. I don't have the adapter anymore anyway =/

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

    ****, it worked! Thank you, Somechick, for starting up my brain on this hot summer day. It's actually easier than your method. My stick dropped about 1 inch in. I inserted the adaptor (as you advised, with the carved-out side facing up), pulled it out with the MS inside. Done! P.S. You may have to press the adaptor down a bit while pulling it out, but in any case, this method is the fastest, safest, easiest in the world, no experience required. Enjoy!

    tilt it on its side, so that port is facing the ground, and with gravity on your side, then start poking the flash disk with a safety pin.

    If you decide to go with the super glue option.. be careful not to get a load of glue stuck inside the port... that can be quite inconvenient

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

    Thank you everybody. This forum helped me to take the mini SD card outside my Toshiba laptop. The card was inserted all the way inside and I could barely see it. I wrapped a tiny pin with a tape then I inserted it in the card port. I took it outside in less than a minute.

    Here is a link to the photo of the taped-pin and my SD card:

    Literally crying with laughter with the amount of one post wonders that have posted in this thread.

    I suppose that's the power of google (and other search engines) though...

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

    It always brings a smile to my face when I see that this thread has bumped back to the top of this forum - it's just one way that HEXUS touches the world beyond out little regular community. And for every person that registers to thank us for the help, the chances are there's several who found the answer they wanted but didn't register to say thanks.

    It's nice to know we've done our little bit to help out

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

    Hi guys!
    I just wanted to thank whoever thought of the reversed duo pro adaptor use. It got out on the first attempt! I cannot believe I spent all day trying with toothpicks and needles!! It was so easy that way! And I would have never thought it by myself..
    Thank you!!!

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

    I just want to say a big thank you for this post, it worked and I was really panicking beforehand (pics of my holiday to India on it!). Normally I don't use posts or find comments helpful but this really worked THANK YOU!!

    i got a small key chain credit card thing, not a credit card but like the key chain passes you have for a gym, or for a gas card, or in my case, a "Borders reward carD" - i will post a picture. i cut the side of it off so it would fit in the slot. i slid it UNDER the SONY card and then propped it forward...it jumped about halfway forward. not all the way tho... so i kept at it.. what finally worked was sliding the card UNDER the sony card, turning the computer upright, and then propping.

    ok i cant post the picture in here because im a new member so you'll have to use your imagination sorry
