    My question may sound weird but I have iMac, Late 2013 model and I am having a tough time as I want to insert a SD Card into it But I don't know how to as I can see no instructions on internet.When I try to insert it, it is half outside and the metal pins are inside but still my Mac is not recognising it. Please tell me how to insert the SD Card or is it some kinda hardware/software problem?

    The SD card isn't going to be completely flush with the back of the iMac, it's going to stick out a bit so you can pull it back out. When you say it's not recognizing it, you mean it doesn't show up on your desktop? Do you see it when you go into Disk Utility?

    How quickly are you inserting it? The first time I used one, I was careful and slow... when it actually needs you to insert it fairly quickly (similar to inserting a chip-based credit card into a terminal).

    On all of my own Macs that have SD card slots, I've found those slots to be temperamental insofar as consistently reading cards is concerned.
    Some cards are read easily.
    Others are troublesome.

    A cheap USB "card reader" seems to work much better.
    They now come in USB3 speeds, so getting files from the card is pretty fast, too.

    I mean it is not visible on the the disk utility....which surely means it it doesn't show up on the desktop too!

    I did it slowly..then tried a but fast as it was not recognising it...after trying some times I just didn't do because I did not want to break my SD card which is expensive (both money and items stored in it)

    Yup! after trying one-two times more, ill order it from amazon. sadly I wasn't able to do the work I wanted to but yeah maybe after a day when I order the sd card reader...
