    They really seem to think that the center of the disk gets hairline fractures in it and that's what causes them to do this. :smokin:

    WS - copy it first. Keep the vidcam rolling as it explodes 'cause I want it on tape. I broke one with my hands the other day and it did expode. Little shards of the recording surface flew everywhere. (And why did I do such a foolish thing? It hung up in a drive at work and was scratched horribly by the person who yanked it out. It made quite an impression. They probably won't do that again.)

    Oh yes, I can relate to having done that in anger before. More so to floppy disks though. :hammer:

    But, floppies aren't as explosive as cd's. You have to break floppies to shred the little disk.

    It used to be great fun snapping floppies and throwing around the disk inside it around class like a frisbie... :D
