    I just just (30 mins) back got my CR-5400 from Ebay (its a genuine) but seriously the card is stuck in the PSP... I can't pull it out. I have a PSP Slim - 2004...Guys what should i do?!

    There are 2 MicroSD's in it, one 8 gb and another 1 gb... not that it will have anything to do with it..

    Funny thing is its working flawlessly (~ 5.x mB write speeds), i just want to pull it out to replace the 1 gb one with an 8 gb one...

    when you press down on it does the spring depress? if it does im guessing that your cards have popped out a bit, and are stuck against the sides of the slot.

    dunno.

    could be that one of the Micro SDs came out slightly, preventing you from pulling it out.

    A very, very small hand grenade would solve the problem, or any other similar improvised explosive device.

    NOTE: Wear safety goggles.

    Not likely, they wouldn't be read anymore by the PSP, if that was the case.

    It's just a bad case of a thick adapter (maybe it's a fake?), you'll need tweezers and a LOT of patience.

    You might also try to glue something onto the exposed part to help you taking it out.

    probably the metal top on the card socket is bent down slightly.

    i had the exact same problem with a fake 1gb card, i pushed down on it and it got stuck, when i finally got it out i realized the card had actually opened into two as it was glued together poorly.

    I now have a cr-5400 with 24GB (actual capacity is 22.5GB) comprised of an 8GB and 16GB card both bought from play.com

    There great cards and mine hasn't gotten stuck once, it has perfect speed in games i know some people say there's are fake but i got mine from deal-extreme and its been working perfect for months
