CD Eraser


A disk is plastic.

Just throw it on a fire .

Whoa... Quite a spectacle!

Throw it on the fire? Not a good idea if you only want to destroy the data and not the disk !

LoL.. 150,000 Volts of Electricity DESTROYS the disk.

Only thing left is the plastic. Did You watch the video ?

can u re-use the cd to burn something else on it lol

Fire is the best option. It erases the data forever with a simple effort. A disk can be easily bought anytime.
Using 150,000 Volts of Electricity is dangerous !!!

don't get me wrong, that's one cool display.. but i just cut mine with a pair of scissors..

Burning a disc is dangerous. Burning plastic releases potentially deadly gasses such as cyanide, phosgene and other nastiness. not environmentally correct.

We also did all kinds of crazy stuff. I mean we used to do all kinds of jobs from office managing until 5 p.m., then writing and recording until 3 to 4 a.m. and then going back to work at 6 a.m. again. He never slept.

This awesome video shows CD Data Eraser uses much of the electricity.

I was looking forward in search of quite a long time for this kind of information and I thank you for your sincere effort in coming up with such information. This has really made me possible to erase all sorts of unwanted data that I have in my discs.
