ever seen the myth busters episode where they test the myth of cd's shattering in the drive?
it happened to me. it was nuts, it sounded like someone came up and kicked my tower, it was loud. it was not a cdr, but an actual album. it shattered into a million plastic shards. had to take it out to get it all out, just a few big shards. crazy, never thought it would happen to me. but all is good now, sort of, now for some reason it closes after like 3 seconds of being opened, so thats annoying. brand new computer too.
