USB Flash Drive + WashingMachine =

Ya so, I left a USB Flash Drive in meh jeans, u know in that little pocket-in-a-pocket thingy.

It`s a Talent 1g special, black rubbery plastic outside, looks fine. Gonna give it the airing-cupboard treatment for like overnight prehaps.

But in terms of an experiment in robustness - do u reckon it`s gonna work ok ??

(matters not really as I don`t have to pay for these anymore, but hey)

It should work fine as long as you let it properly dry out before using it. Take it apart and hit it with a hair dryer ir something.

I did the same with mine, it worked fine for about 2 months then one day it was unreadable, and could not be reformatted.

Lol yea me to. Like you plug it in and it does all the timing and makes it detect darks and colors and crap. THat would be hella cool. But if you let it dry it should be fine for at least a while.
