Found the card on the left while cleaning my desk drawers -- what is it? SD card for scale (no banana at hand).

@cm It's a SmartMedia card. It was used mostly in the early noughties for cameras, MP3 players, …

@cm Ist eine SmartMedia Karte. Vermutlich mittlerweile so korrupt, dass du sie ne ganze Weile als Ersatz für /dev/random verwenden kannst.

Thanks to everybody who answered, but this brings up the next question: HowTF did that get into my drawers? I don't think I ever owned a device that took those...

Ah, the joys of moving office and finding decade-old stuff...

@cm Now you got to find something to read it and see if it has anything on it. Maybe it's someone's stash of incriminating pictures!

@cm SmartMedia cards were used by some Olympus cameras before they moved to xD cards. I should have an old Card-Reader in my stash they should fit in if you want to do forensics.

@MacLemon Thanks; I've never own an olympics camera either... Whatever, I'm in "throw it away!!!" mode now, no need for forensics.
