The DVD-R that Ate a Superdrive

Just read about this at ZDNet a few minutes ago. The long and the short of it is this: Crap DVD-R completely destroyed the guy’s superdrive.

I don’t know if this particular brand of media is available in Australia but I am looking at the pile of white-coated CDs which (touch wood) so far have not done anything antisocial… and am now determined never to buy that kind again, regardless of who makes them.

    Take note, these are the “printable” type of discs, the ones that can be inserted into certain printers to have the ink printed directly onto the CD/DVD, etc. I never have trusted those. grrrr
