So my card is stuck in the first slot... can I take care of this locally under warranty without having to ship it off? I'm in Seattle.
Thanks in advance

There are some posts in the GH forums about cards getting stuck; do not use force to pull out. Apparently, it had something to do with the lock switch blocking the way. Some user reported a diy solution that worked for him - using a thin piece of plastic to slide into the slot and free the card.
Search the GH forums for more info.

Thanks for the advice, going to give it a try. Hate to be without a camera for a week or more. Been working the last couple shoots with just one card slot, which isn't really a big deal, but Id like to get both up and running.
Shooter, nope didn't insert it wrong. As others have said, it appears to be caught on the locking switch. It's a high quality card, san disk class 10. Incidentally I've had the locking switch on another one of these cards just break off when locking it in my hand

I had the misfortune of getting a card stuck in a GH1 SD card slot, and it required a trip to warranty service to repair. If the SD card slots in the AF100 work like the one in the GH1, there is a serious risk of malfunction. If the write-protect tab in an SD card falls out, the latch mechanism inside the SD card slot will lock into the card and there is no entirely safe way to disengage it and eject the card. Forcibly removing the SD card will very likely ruin the SD card slot. On my GH1, it required a motherboard replacement to repair it.
