    i have a EZ4-Lite and im having GREAT DIFFICULTY removing the TF card from both the EZ4-lite and the TF-SD adapter... i literally have a pile of fingernail flakes that have chipped off from trying to remove the card.

    It can be very hard at first. I recommend unscrewing the case and removing it that way at first. Pop it in a few times, and it will loosen up.

    after you unscrew the cart, file down the problem areas with something and that might help loosen it up a bit quicker.

    I reccomend placing a small piece of tape across the transflash, and folding a small length of the tape on the end to make a sort of "tab" you can pull to get the card out. That's what I do with my miniSD in my EZ4.

    I also had to unscrew the case to get it out.

    What a pain in the arse!

    Finally I got it out. Its impossible to do with nails.
    I have to get a piece of cloth or clothing and try and scrub it out.
    Its a really tight fit in there.

    Im frightened of how to get it out of the ez4lite, since its really deep in there.

    Mine loosened up a bit, I can now get it out of the SD adapter without much trouble. It's hard as crap to get ahold of though.

    Mine too, I can easily get it out the sd adapter now.

    The ez4lite is totally difffernt. It is in the hole tight, and its not a matter of being able to get a good grip and pull it out. Its really tight, so much so its scrapes when you pull it out. The case is just so cheap.

    If the ez4lite team had just spent more money on better cart materials than a nice presentation box.......
