    PERHAPS your putting it the wrong way? the number should be facing up... or there is something already inside? you should be able to see something there definitely

    there appears to be a piece of wire kind of round in there, not gonna send it back even though brand new. lost my 17 256g when screen got cracked somehow and they wouldn't fix it. will never trust that process again! Will just live with it, use external hard drive etc. Thanks for answering

    Wait so you just bought a *new* i3 SP3 and it has a problem with the micro SD slot? Return it! You have 30 days to return it for a refund.

    Thanks for info. Will just keep it, afraid to send it back as they might say screen cracked and not replace it like they did with my i7 256 g. Regret the day I started all this SP3 nightmare. Will use it for e-mail and web browsing on trips so won't need micro slot was just hoping someone had a "trick" or brand to get it to work. Thanks again everyone in this forum who have tried to help and/or just listen.

    If they say they wont fix it (unlikely) then say never mind, and you are no worse off than not trying. So why not try?

    Dare I suggest Geek Squad. I cringe at the thought but suggest it for convenience.
