CF Card & the washing machine
It so happened, that I recently returned from a abroad-trip and throwed all my laundry straight into the washing machine. Unfortunately, one of the pockets contained a 128 MB compact flash card.
It did not contain anything really important (some mp3s), but I still hate to lose it. Fortunately, my main stuff (e-books, interviews etc) is on another 512 MB CF card and that is the one i'd really hate to lose.
It was in the plastic case when washed (and in a pocket of my jacket) so it does not have any apparent mechanical damage. The washing machine used water 30 degrees centigrade (so it's not cooked). But I'm a bit afraid to try it out in my iPaq 2210. The label on the card says: Avoid heat, moisture etc.
What would you do? Throw the card away and forget it or try it out? Can it damage the iPaq if I try?
