Yeah, the card will need to establish a proper handshake link with the computer to do anything with it. The camera's card slot looked pretty benign when I had mine open a few days ago to repair the card latch. There's nothing in there that water can damage (other than to short adjacent pins). In fact water can drain out of it since the cover is not attached to the base... just a slip fit. I think any moisture that could get inside the microSD card, can eventually evaporate and escape from it... keeping it in a ward spot to accelerate any recover if it's going to happen. Put it in your camera when you charge it... it gets quite warm in there!
