I remove my card and load the card to my computer with my camera next to the computer. As it down loads I switch batteries and keep the camera next to te computer. When it down loaded I put the card back and clean the cards and set it up again THEN.

You want to verify that the card downloaded properly and you have backed up the data in your computer. Only then should you clean the cards.

I grabbed my D750 and went out to take pictures earlier. When I got home, I removed the SD card and saw that there was only one card in the camera. I had removed the other one to process some pictures, but I didn't replace it. If the camera didn't have a second slot, I would have been out of luck. Of course, I could have opened the SD door to see what was in there before I left. I did check to make sure the battery was good.

I'm really skeered that I might loose them on the other two slots.
Maybe I should get four slots.

What in the world did we do for so long with only one card slot.......

I close the card and battery doors because they look too vulnerable when they're open.

On my camera menu I set the camera up NOT to take pictures if there is "no card" in the camera. You were fortunate but why don't you see if you set your D750 to not take pictures if both slots are empty. I have two slots. The CF slot is for RAW and SD slot is for JPEG on my Canon R5.

If my replacement camera has dual slots, since I have so many SD cards and no CF cards,
I simply won't use the CF slot.

I rotate 3 cards in my one-slot 77D camera. The one that's in the camera, and 2 formatted speres. When I download from the card, I immediately replace the original card with one of the spares. Then I leave out the empty card holder and format the original card after I confirm a good download. Then the downloaded now reformatted card becomes spare #2, into the case and back into the pocket in my bag. I don't know if this does anything but keep me organized, but that's how I manage it. If I had 2 slots, I'd modify the rotation with a few more cards, at the, ugh, higher price for the faster transfer.
