    I will still post what Nintendo's reply is. I was going to do it anyway if I did get it out for future reference for anyone browsing this board and looking for Nintendo's answer to the problem.
    I'm glad you got it out. You might want to check the silver strip at the bottom of that card slot though. I read somewhere(IGN?) where someone yanked out the card but a metal piece came out with it

    I found this post (and this site) in a Google for 'wii stuck gamecube memory card', which I have been repeating every few days.

    A little backstory. I haven't owned a Nintendo since the SNES. One of my former roommates had a GameCube, though, and when he left, he forgot one of his memory cards.

    When I got my Wii on 12/3 I immediately put his old Pelican 4mb memory card into Slot A, and was delighted to see it work - I wouldn't have to buy one! - and crushed when I discovered it would not come back out. I guess this was my roommate's one last chance to get back at me. We weren't exactly friends.

    I tried calling Nintendo but I only got a busy signal (maybe they don't like Skype? It's the closest thing I have to a landline, and I won't spend my prepaid cellular minutes on hold with them). I hadn't thought of e-mailing them, so I'll do that, and post back here if I get a response before someone else.

    I have just defected from the Sony camp and I'm very pleased with the console in every respect except for this. It's rather insulting to see people requesting help and being told they're lying. Methinks some people let themselves get too fanatical about platforms, but I guess that shouldn't be new to me - I'm a Mac user. And no, not one of the arrogant ones. We do exist :P

    Anyway, I thought I would also chip in that I too tried all manner of pushing and pulling, wiggling and squeezing, from-every-angle-you-could-possibly-imagine, but I always stopped when I heard the strain of plastic. The memory card slot does not feel nearly as sturdy as the rest of the console, controllers, etc. I am not willing to risk breaking the slot by forcing it out at this time. Another topic I found in my Googling suggests someone who used brute force did bend the metal contacts in the slot, which would render it inoperable and be rather tragic:
    http://boards.ign.com/wii_sports/b10...48/r132052019/

    So, it will be interesting to see what Nintendo says, considering this was a third-party card. If people have been having problems with official cards, though, maybe I have some hope.

    P.S.: anyone who suggested 'you put it in the wrong way' or 'you put it in the wrong slot' has obviously never seen any kind of Nintendo hardware.

    Had the same problem but pulled the card out (offical Nintendo card).

    This WILL damage the two metal straps inside your wii.

    Have mailed Nintendo and called them but almost a week later no reply.

    Best leave the card in for now as other user are having the same problem.

    Can't really blame them for wanting to talk to you directly because they'll probably tell you to try a few things but they could have at least given you one thing to try. Thanks for posting it.

    This only happens in Slot A right? I know people have put the card in slot B then switched to A thinking the Wii would look for a card in Slot A. Can you just use slot B? Will the Wii read it? If so, I guess everyone stick to slot B just incase

    I haven't tried it yet to see if the Wii will read Slot B instead if nothing is in Slot A. The metal parts inside Slot A have been pulled up out of their original positions so I'm pretty sure my Slot A is damaged. I'm not looking to try it out anyway to find out lol. I would send it in to Nintendo since I have a 90 Day Warranty but I doubt I'd be playing Gamecube games that much on the Wii and if I do, I'm certain the Slot B will work as I have no problems with it thus far.

    Have a look on page 33 of your manual. The standard warranty is 12 months, which is extended by an additional 90 days if you register the console at nintendo.com. Awesome, eh? Who else does that these days?
