Washed CF cards
Steven Limentani, Photographer

->> I managed to wash three CF cards and two cfast 2.0 cards in the washing machine. Any thoughts on whether they will be safe to put in a camera and try? Whether they will be stable/hurt?

->> Just an idea. You might mechanically check them in a card reader first. If you got debris in one of the holes in the card interface and the hole is blocked it will probably break the pin in the camera when you try to insert it. Better a busted card reader rather than a bused camera.

->> Have washed them too with no problem. But before putting them in the camera I used canned air to thoroughly clean out the holes and used a magnifying class to look inside to see if anything was in any of the holes. Never found anything and the cards have worked just fine since.
