They use aluminum for the shiny part in the middle. For master recordings, they use 24K gold. I have a copy of Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" pressed on 24K gold.

@Canoas I don't think the shiny surface is sandwiched between layers. We used old CDs as bird scarers, and after just a few weeks the shiny side had flaked off leaving clear plastic discs.

"based on how fast it's working, the heat is gone before it could melt the plastic so lots of cd's would still be readable if you just re-mirrored it..."

But how would you access the "shiny part" (I don't know what it's made of). Thats stuck being two layers of plastic.

I usually just snap one into tiny little pieces. But I mean you could always get some industrial power line equipment and nearly fry yourself instead.

"The easiest way to erase a CD or any other media is to give it to my girlfriend and say 'hey, keep this safe'. guaranteed the data will be completely lost for good within the day."

If she scratches the hell out of it, give it a good coat of toothpaste, let it dry, then wipe it (gingerly) until it's all gone. The toothpaste will fill in the scratches and the lazer won't skip anymore.

this is a decent way to show science....The electric arcs are actually removing the metal from BEWTEEN the plastic CD layers leave not a single scorch mark....I wonder if there are any practicle applications for this?

It's not erasing it, it is removing the aluminum from the inside of it. It is effectively destroying it. This CD isn't erased, it's broken.

Anyone else remember the broken with Kevin Rose, made a laptop with a Thermite booby trap switch. That's how you wipe the hard drive so no one can read it at all.
