CD Shattering

August 24th, 2009 10:08 am

A CD shattered yesterday inside a drive.  I had no idea that this could even happen.  But apparently, I’m far from being the first one to experience this.  In fact, I’m more of a lucky one, since all shattered pieces remained inside the drive.

It was kinda scary when it happened.  My daughter was watching old episodes of Friends for the umpteenth time, burned on some cheap-o CD.  Then there was a sudden loud crack, followed by a high-pitched grinding noise.  I thought something exploded inside my PC case.  Of course, this was my newest of 3 drives in work today.

But that’s okay.  Now this gives me a good excuse to buy a Blu-Ray drive.

    ouch, thats not 2 bad tho. Where i worked there was a faulty dvd slot drive that came in for rma. after reading the disc for a few minutes it would then shatter the disc and then shoot the disc parts out. now that is fun

    lol also reminds me of when a dude returned a “dual layer dvd burner” saying it doesn’t work. he put 2 dvd disc in @ once to burn “dual layer” hehe :p

    end random
