Arduino SD Removal

Hello, all!

I have a project that is reading from a .txt file on an SD card.
The SD card is never in write mode.

What is the best way to remove the card? Should I go through the tedious process of disabling power, or could I just remove it? (removal will only take place when the card is not actively being read from)

Thanks!

I don't power down my PC when I remove a SD card.
I do click the safely remove icon, but I think this just ensures all writing to the device is finished.

.

Thanks. I have one SD card that failed after extended use with my arduino. I don’t know if it was causation or correlation, but I just wanted to make sure :slight_smile:

Thanks!
