Hello All -

I've got a Samsung NP900X3A Ultrabook which I love.  On each side, it has a door with ports in it.  The left side has a USB 3.0, video, & NIC adapter port and the right side has a micro USB slot, USB 2.0, and a headphone port.  When not in use, these ports slide back up into the laptop, itself.

I went and bought an ~18gb microSD card to use in it and it works fine - HOWEVER -  I cannot shut the port door when the card is inserted.  I don't know why they designed it like this, but it's how it is. (See attached pic #1)

Attached pic #2 is a picture of the microSD card, iteself, as if there weren't enough on the internet already.

My Question
Would it be possible to trim / cut just a small amount off the microSD card without affecting it so that I can close the port door on the right side?  I know they try to fit a lot in such a small space, but it would only need to be trimmed a hair.  I've searched all over for a pic of a disected microSD, but can't find one.



Thanks!
