If you ever put an SD card in the CD/DVD slot of iMac...
Feb 16, 2012

Was very sleepy when I stupidly put my SD card into the CD/DVD slot of my iMac instead of the SD card slot. Panicked and called the Apple shop. The girl was giggling while I explained my problem. She said to bring it over (I guess I'm not the first, hehe).

Anyway, I searched the Apple Support forum and found indeed I'm not the only one to make this booboo. This youtube video was suggested and I have to say, it works as advertised!

Saved me a trip to the shop, and a potential replacement of the drive (worst case scenario)! Thought I'd share it in case others here make the same mistake.
