8 in 1 media card slot usage

Has anyone tried to use different media card on the laptop?  I have the XPS Studio laptop, and with the 8 in 1 media card reader built in.  I used it for SD card, and it worked.  How about the other format?  its size is smaller than the other.  I tried to push it in the slot, and it doesn't sit and was afraid it will get stuck.  Help!!

Re: 8 in 1 media card slot usage

I put a Memory Stick Pro Duo in my Inspirion 1545's Media Card Reader. It was promptly swallowed up inside the slot. Finally, I had to fish it out with a pencil. I see no way for this reader to work with a Memory Stick Pro - even though it says it accepts them. The slot is simply too big and too deep. Is there something I am missing? Is there a plastic carrier that the Memory Stick should be placed in prior to inserting in the slot?

Thanks for the info and pictures. I too had this issue come up and was wondering about this as well. I too had to fish out the MS Pro stick from my reader with tweezers.

Thanks again for sharing the info.

Re: 8 in 1 media card slot usage

I just bought STUDIO 1558 and I can insert MS PRO DUO, which is bigger one, BUT here I found out other problem.

When I insert this memory, the slot does NOT latch this memory but push it out.

So, once I insert it and hold with my hand, I can see my computer is detect it but, after I release my hand, it pops out and my computer can not read it.

IS THIS NORMAL ?

Thanks,
