    First off, is it in correctly?

    Second, Grab some tape maybe and pull it out that way?

    Is this the first time you're using it. It's really tight when it's new but later on it'll become loose.
    In the meantime, use a pencil (the eraser end) to get it out, but watch out because it might fly out and you could lose it.

    What do you mean by the eraser end, or how?

    I just use my fingernails,

    If that doesn't work, I get some tweezers.

    Insert thin knife blade behind microsd card. Remove card by pulling on knife blade and card at the same time..

    When you insert the MicroSD in the SD card adapter,

    Flick that switch that's on the SD adapter.

    I don't have the time to try that now, but as soon as I'm back on I'll let you know if it works.

    Something like that should be pretty obvious to solve.
