How to Remove an SD Card from a MacBook

A Mac with an SD (Secure Digital) or SDXC (SD extended capacity) card slot will allow you to transfer files to and from a digital camera.

Inserting a card formatted by a digital camera into a Mac is functionally equivalent to attaching the camera to the Mac.

  • Insert an SD card: With the card’s metal contacts facing down and pointing towards the computer, insert the card into the slot.
  • Eject an SD card: In the sidebar of a Finder window, select the card, then choose File > Eject. After the card’s icon disappears from the sidebar, remove the card from the slot.
  • If you see a message saying the card cannot be modified: The slider on the side of the card may be in the locked position. Remove the card, move the slider to the unlocked position, then insert the card again.
