Default SD cards not read - 05-23-2010, 09:11 PM

Recently, I tried to salvage a Memory Stick Pro DUO by taping it together with duct tape. However, I could not salvage it, and now, there is duct tape stuck to the card reader. Now it can read Memory Sticks and MMCs, but it does not read SD cards. Is there anyway I can clean the card reader so that it reads SD cards again? Thanks.

you can probably try using some isopropyl alcohol on a thin piece of felt or a q-tip and let it dry..alcohol dries pretty quickly.., also lighter fluid or nail polish remover..both would probably work also and that would dissolve the might have to do it a couple of times...personally thats what I would try myself...

Good Luck....
