Welcome to the science of nutrition aka "how to tell if it's food"

Tonight, this strange little card slotted into a DVR board, on the right is the faceplate this card was wrapped in

Peripheral? Or higher?

That’s a standard pcmcia card. It’s peripheral

I just find the same looking cisco power key in a cable box. How do you remove the card?

Remove the card from the box?
Or the board out of the card shell?

The second is easy. Jam a #2 or smaller standard (aka flat) screwdriver in the side between the metal seams and twist.

The first, getting the card out of the box, varies. Most are just spring loaded. Either a button or a small pin hole (like old Apple floppy drives) if a large hole next to the card jam a screwdriver into the hole. (Hole directly next to the card socket, obviously With the machine unplugged). If a tiny little hole use a paper clip or hair pin.
On the off chance there’s no way to eject it externally you found one of the extremely uncommon Motorola branded VCE boxes that has a powered loading socket. Only way to get the card out is with the correct ID in the menu or by taking the box apart. Those are security Torx screws. You’ll need a #7 security torx bit or driver. Don’t try to jam a standard Torx bit in there. They don’t work. The screws are aluminium and strip easily for security. Also it’s righty loosey. Not lefty. Speed out screw removers work well in a pinch (#2 notched).

the card itself. the first thing i did was remove the card. I had trouble getting a few screws off the cable box, so i was waiting for hubby. I like to browse the forum and i ran across a cisco powerkey and decided to look.I'm glad I did. I was planning on throwing it out. Thanks guys for the help.
