I'm sure the memory card i'm using is right but it wont fit

I've got an 8300 and it looks as though the card will fit and then the metal lock over it wont close and if i try to it looks like its about to snap.
What is the memory card to use just to make sure ?

you don't need strength to insert the card. The model should be either "microSD card" or "MicroSDHC card". It is not miniSD, nor SD, nor Compact Flash.

you'd better look on the internet for a tutorial on how to insert the memory card.
there are series of pictures, and also videos on youtube. I can't find them right now unfortunately.

The card goes IN the little door into the tracks, then closes down. It is NOT like the Sim card.
