    So I recently got this PC from PC world, and they said it was up to date with the latest technology, so I wanted to see if my computer would read my credit card like those ATM machines, so I placed it in the CD ROM and it got stuck...

    I tried toothpicks but I lost them in the process...
    and also the CD drive is making funny noises....
    and can my credit details get hacked or something?


    Help?
