    this is a picture of the symbols on the removable floppy drive for my old laptop, the circled symbol is one that really baffles me as its kinda contradictory
    any comments welcome

    Maybe it's telling you in Ancient Cuneiform that there are no floppies or cd-roms inside it and opening it to look will release a curse.

    The next panel shows that you will be tortured with electricity, have your fingers removed and your eye poked out and your coffin will not get a true burial.

    At least that's what the strip of hieroglyphs tells me.

    Simple, don't try to jam a CD into your floppy drive.

    Don't laugh, people try.

    Darwin did his best, but natural selection is a slow process and Americans have survived.

    yeah, it looks very contradictory to me, looks like "Don't insert either Floppy or CD" kinda sign.

    You can insert anything other than a disc or floppy in it
    All the technology and software in the universe is useless when the end user has the IQ of a sack of hammers.

    Don't take the floppy disk out of the stiff floppy disk container.
