Removing an SD card from a Slot Loading Optical Drive
October 28, 2010
Not to long ago, I was finally getting around to offloading some pictures from my camera via its SD card. My netbook (Eek) has a slot to take SD (and several other types) of memory cards on its right hand side. My work laptop, has a similar slot on the left hand side; it also happens to have a slot loading optical drive (rather than the traditional tray). So, there I was, not really paying attention, and reaching over to insert the SD card into my work laptop, when I realized I had just placed it into my optical drive’s slot. Ooops… no biggie, right? Not like I pushed it in all the way. So I lean over and attempt to pinch it to grab it out. Turns out, I should have gone for my pliers, because instead of grasping it, I pushed it further inside.
