    Hello,

    I have read several posts about this so I will explain my problem in detail. I put the correct SD Card in the slot of my new Toshiba Satellite Lap Top. I have used it several times before without incident. I know the card works, it is the right size and I have removed it before without incident. So I clicked safely remove hardware. It said the device can now be removed. But when I try pressing it in, it doesn't release. There is no release button or little hole like on DVD drives, etc. I beleive the Windows 8 operating system may have some way to keep this from releasing while it is in use. I can not access the drive right now as Windows Explorer does not show it as being there. This is most likely because I requested to safely romove it. Any ideas? I don't feel like going to Best Buy and waiting on line for Geek Squad. Thank You.

    There are no ways to lock a card in the slot by the operating system, it's just stuck. Have you tried using something like tweezers to pull it out?
