The Mini-SD Card
I had a 4gb Mini-SD card. One day me and my girlfriend took the kid to the zoo to try out the zip-lines. The card on my camera was full so I swap it for the Mini-SD with an adapter.
Later, back @ home, my girlfriend wanted to try out some music on her new smart phone. I loaded some soundtracks on the Mini-SD card and put it on the phone.
Later that night my girlfriend noticed the music & photos where not accessible anymore. I took a look at it and found that I had fail to close the Mini-SD slot properly and the card fell out. We look all around the house for that card because it had the pictures on it, but we never found it.
Months went by, we moved to a new place and I forgot about the card.
The new DVD drive
Few months at the new place we were trying to install a game in the computer and noticed the CD/DVD drive was not working. I quickly went to the nearby PC joint and got a new CD/DVD burner, sata, for ~$20 bucks. It worked like a charm.
The New PC
Few months later (actually, last week I believe) I'm putting together a new computer. One thing I didn't bought was a CD/DVD drive. The one I bought for the old PC was only like a month old and I could install it on the new PC.
I took the drive out of the old PC and noticed a rattling sound. "Something broke already" I thought, thinking I really got the cheapest drive ever. For $20 bucks, I was going to trow it away and get a new one, but I was curious about this rattling sound on this new drive so I opened it before discarding it.
To my surprise, there was a Mini-SD card inside the DVD drive. I plug it into the computer and guess what? The zoo day pictures and the music! WTF?!
That card was lost like 6 months ago on a different house. It now appears inside a DVD drive that I bought 2 months ago after moving to our new house? Weird.
