A few minutes ago I moved the laundry from the washer to the dryer … after I started the dryer I noticed a thunking noise. Usually this means some coins were left in a pocket and was rattling around in the dryer.
So I fished around in the dryer to find the rattling items … and I found a compact flash memory card. It apparently had been left in a pocket after one of our photo expeditions.
Considering it had been washed I figured it was toast. Scratch one Lexar 256mb 40x CF card 🙁 .
Just for grins, however, I decided to put it in the reader to see if anything was recoverable. Lo-and-behold … the card appears to be working fine. Even chkdsk reports everything OK.
