    Is there a trick to do the above? I may just have fingers that are too big to properly grip the card, but I've only managed to remove the card with some needle nose pliers. The reader slot doesn't seem to have one of those push in-pop out mechanisms that other readers have...

    So either there is some trick to it, or the needle-node plier process is the intended way to go?

    My trick is that there are always tweezers next to the printer anyways for grabbing stray bits of filament....

    (The needle pliers are close to the trash for breaking off support!)

    Also I have 2 SD cards. One in the machine and the other next to the computer. So I never have to get up to go and get it. ;-)

    Be thankful you don't have the octoprint one to deal with as well :), though by rights that shouldn't need removing often and it pretty much eliminates the need for the other SD card.
