Thanks again for all the help everyone and apologies for the delay in answering, it's been one of those weeks and I haven't had a chance.
I've tried contact cleaner with no luck I'm afraid.
The output of dmesg, with a card in the left slot, is as follows
And when I try ls-l as above I get...
What is it they say? Every day's a schoolday!
Thanks for the info about card naming, that clears up one mystery.
I still have no idea what happened to the slot though. I left the battery out overnight, and I tried air but no luck.
I will send off an RMA email next week.
If anyone is reading...
That's it exactly.
It just seems strange that the access led flashes when I insert a card.
Something is obviously happening in there, even though it's like the slot isn't assigned a name so it can't be accessed.

Thanks again for...

I haven't had a chance to come on here for a while as I've been too busy.
It's great to see everone in the community is as friendly and helpful as ever!
And on that note I'm having a problem with my Pandora's screen.
Horizontal lines have appeared on my XFCE workspace, and appear...
Can't believe I missed that "a"! D'oh!
I tried it and it still says no sound. But in the mixer controls a usb microphone is listed so something is being recognised. I have tried to switch inputs there but no luck, still nothing.
Thanks again for all this help!
OK, hope this works...
Here's the dmesg.out

Sorry but I have a couple of more question. Firstly, how do I enter this in mplayer? I'm a total linux newb and I'm not sure about opening a terminal and typing away yet. I must have done it wrong as it said "no such file" or something similar. Also would this work for VLC? Assuming...
