    Yeah, I said it. I reached up without looking to stick the SD card in the SD slot (iMac), but missed. I know you all have jokes, and I expect them. But after we've all had a laugh, can someone tell me how to get this out?

    Thanks.

    I would think a small and thin hook (fishing hook), maybe even a paperclip to reach in there and pop it out should do it.

    I would like to propose a toast...to the internet. I have retrieved my SD card from the depths of a Macintosh optical drive. It shall live to store photos another day. Also, a special thanks to AL Gore.

    Take two Credit Cards.
    Push the one in of that Side of CD and second Card to other Site of CD,then bend the two Card away from another which will do inside the CD-Drive the other Way,pressing against the CD,so then pull it out.
