Photos from Dec 03, 2002

This is what can happen when a CD with stress fractures spins up to 50X.
CD Blows Apart, Explodes. Shatters
After hearing a loud "BANG" while powering up the
computer and noticing that the front of the CD drive
was no longer flush with the front of the machine,
we found this inside the CD-ROM drive.

This is all that was left after removing the CD-ROM
drive and shaking out all the pieces. The pieces that
were left were so small we couldn't be sure which CD
we had lost. The force of the exploding CD pieces ruined
the CD-ROM drive as well.
