    I just bought a 64GB ScanDisk Ultra PLUS SDXC UHS-I Card to use on my Macbook Pro, but as I push it in it won't go all the way.
    Was told by Best Buy it works on a Macbook Pro.

    Is there a specific size or brand that I need to buy?
    Thanks!

    Full-size SD cards will not fit fully in any Mac.

    PNY and Transcend make chopped-off SD cards that are custom-made to fit flush into a Mac's SD slot.

    Thanks for your responses.
    It works, just didn't know about it only going halfway.
    Not bad for $50.

    One more question:
    Do I have eject like any other external drive to avoid it being corrupted?

    B&H is a toy store for me, without a doubt.
    I buy stuff from them.

    Yup. Click on the drive icon in Desktop and hit Cmd+E, or eject it from the Finder sidebar.
