    My EDGE card arrived this morning and so I tested it with my 4gd sandisk tf card and now I can't take the bugger out =_= I tried with my nails and it still didn't come out so I stopped as I didn't to break the EDGE card.

    Any ideas on how to remove the TF card? I mean it doesn't seem like anyone else here has had a problem.

    How do you mean that it's stuck? Is it caught on something inside the cart?

    Try putting a little pressure on the card with your nail and slowly slide it out.

    It just doesn't come out with ease. Only way I got it out was using a bit of my t-shirt and used my nail.

    of the ten edge ds i bought recently 2 were quite hard to get the memory out , but they do come out with a little force and once its come out i normally find it dont get stuck again.

    some do seem quite hard to get out but they will with a little force .

    I had a similar issue when I got my CycloDS. I wound up using a little grabber that came in my computer toolkit (kinda like an olive grabber.) After a couple of times it loosened up enough to be nail-removable (though if the damned microSD had just a slightly bigger lip on it's edge it probably wouldn't have been a problem at all.)

    After some time it will get easier to remove it, just don't be afraid to apply a little pressure:) I had the same problem as well when i got mine.

    Happened when I first got my EDGE.
    Once you take it out 2-3 times, it should be easy to take out [​IMG]

    This reminds me of when I had an R4, the darn MicroSD was so stiff stuck in the slot I was wondering if they were supposed to include pliers with the package [​IMG]

    But yeah, it finaly came out and with a few inserts and removals it was fine and dandy. Which then made me worry if it got loosened too much. Talk about a 180 deg. turn >_>
