    Go out late at night and feed it to a very large fish like a shark. They will eat it. It's amazing to watch. I do not believe it can be retrieved or put back together after the sharks teeth chew on it.

    I get a piece of needle or pen and scribble hard over the disk so it cannot be read anymore.

    But what about cd+r disks ?
    It's the "plus sign" that worries me the most. Plus usually means better and better means harder to destroy.
    IMO, you can't destroy a cd+r the same way as a cd-r, you have to beat harder or something.

    How about beating it with a 2kg till a fine powder, serious through just put it through a Heavy duty paper shredder that shreds credit cards into little bits Cross Cut I think the call it.

    a hole in them and turns them into wind chimes.

    You don't need to put much effort into it if you want a disc to be unreadable. Plastic disks are the worst storage media ever made. Just drag a sharp object over it once and it's useless. Every disk is going to be unreadable anyway sooner or later.

    As an optician, I have a lot of experience with polycarbonate (security glasses and light weight optical lenses).

    It' s simple : just one or two drop of acetone.

    afaik, CD-Rs cannot be erased, though u can still add data as long as the CD has space and it hasnt yet been finalized.

    Completely destroy them? Use a disk or belt sander, or a right angle grinder and a vise. Start on one edge and grind them until there's nothing left but half melted powder and twisted shavings.

    Yes but some burners don,t give the option to add data.
    I have Sonic RecordNow and it just closes the CD after writing, no option to disable ithis fuction, that,s pretty bad.

    I got one! The Compact Disc Eraser. It's a new product! *puppy*

    UNLIKE other known methods of burning, breaking, frying, microwaving, shooting, acid/solvent bathing, or even shredding, the Disc Eraser leaves your unwanted CD completely intact. NO eWaste! This is due to a new optical strip technology that takes less than 2 seconds to do. There is no mess, no chemical, AND no cleanup fuss! It's small enough to fit inside your pocket or laptop case. Easy to use, 100% safe.

    It's a Top American Invention that is aimed at PRESERVING OUR ENVIRONMENT by promoting RECYCLING rather than creating eWaste, whenever a CD-R is physically shredded or broken into pieces you render them UNRECYCLABLE! So STOP breaking, use the Disc Eraser, and remember to recycle your erased CD-Rs and DVDRs in any plastics recycling bin. It's the BEST VALUE and more durable than expensive and bulky CD shredders and other disc destruction devices.
