    My micro sd chip got sucked into my cd drive because mine is magnetic for some reason. Is there a safe way to get it out? I tried using my vacuum but then realizing after there was already a cd in it so it sucked onto the vacuum and broke. but the chip is still there. :mad:

    I accidentally stuck an SD (not micro) into my DVD slot and the best thing to get it out was to make an "F" shape out of a piece of stiff card stock, insert it into the DVD slot with the teeth down, lower it & try to surround the SD card with it and pull out. Worked fine. I also read later that some people used an old credit card the same way.

    I've seen a video of that, all that was needed was an L shape, put it in with the leg of the L facing downwards, and pull.
