I've been using the media card reader slot a lot to load photos from a digital camera to the TP. Actually I'm using a micro-SD card in a "carrier" or adapter, making it the regular SD card size. It works fine in the camera, but in the card reader in the W520, the contact is inconsistent. (Sometimes the system doesn't read that the card is there.) I discover that my see-sawing the card a little, I can get contact and hence get the system to read the card. It didn't do this about 9 months ago.
- The card carrier is cheap and has worn out... or otherwise doesn't fit as snugly as it could. Try a different card carrier and see if contact is regular?
- The media card reader slot generally doesn't work well well with these card carriers. Stop using a micro-SD in a carrier in the camera and just use a regular SD card all around.
Thanks. Hope everyone is having a good year and summer.

Clean the contacts on the media card reader slot, I guess?
