How do I use the memory card slot on my laptop ??

My Compaq nx7400 has a pop-out tray on the left side, with 4 slots for memory cards - I think ?! 

I've tried loading an SD card into the tray & pushing the tray in - but without success.....

 

Anyone know the correct way to use this weird plastic tray thingy ??

 

Thanks

Re: How do I use the memory card slot on my laptop ??

Hi, I have a new G72-25OUS laptop, I'm wondering how to use the slot on the left side, that says SD-MS/Pro-MMC-XD?

 

I assume its to put a SD card in from my camera to upload photos, do I just stick it in and if so, how do I get it out?

 

I don't have a manual, didn't come with one and can't find info in the help section.

 

Hope someone knows how to do this.

 

Thanks.

I don't use a memory card reader but I think that you need an adapter. I had one with my old laptop but haven't got one with my new one. Something like this..

amanti05,

 

You do not need an adapter.  Go to page 87 in your users manual.
