For reasons I dont understand, my SD card will not slide all

For reasons I don't understand, my SD card will not slide all the way into the slot. What can I do to fix this? It is a Canon Powershot A710

Hi,note that metal contacts are sliding into card slot first,with contacts down and diagonal corner as indicated.Be sure that metal contacts go in first.If you still have problem try another card,inspect card holder for any obstruction using a light. Spraying canned air(blow off) will clear any obstructions from holder.However,I do believe that reversing card so contacts are facing into camera should allow card to be inserted.

If you have any other questions please ask....Best to you,Joe
