How to Erase a CD, Permanently

There are plenty of ways to get rid of data on a CD. If you have a rewritable disc, for instance, you can just delete the files off of it and empty the trash can on your computer. Or if it’s permanently burned, you can just get a disc shredder. But if your a tech geek, you need to do something much, much cooler.

And if you’re really feeling adventurous, why not erase two discs at a time?

Now that’s how to erase your CDs with style. I only wish that AOL still sent out those dial-up discs in the mail. I’d finally have something to do with them.
