Heh, you was right. After pressing firmly on the card holder it worked
and it even booted from the sd card. Now I get:

Manufacturer ID: 2
OEM: 544d
Name: SD08G
Tran Speed: 25000000
Rd Block Len: 512
SD version 2.0
High Capacity: Yes
Capacity: 7969177600
Bus Width: 4-bit

The first time I inserted the sd card a lot of power was required to
open the sd slot and I think I even lifted the plastic around the slot
from the motherboard. That's why I bent it a little bit to release it
so that it was as strong as in the GTA02. Will bend it again ...
