How To Dismantle A Compact Disc

If I didn’t know better, I’d swear it was a new (and actually effective) anti-piracy measure: the dodgy copy of the new U2 album that I’ve been listening to for the last couple of weeks has just started to disintegrate: it started by just skipping, but then I took the disc out of the machine and noticed some really funny blotches on the non playing side of the disc. I tried rubbing them gently to get them off, only to discover that that had the effect of rubbing right through the disc, so you can now see through to the other side. Funnily enough it doesn’t play at all now. I suspect it may be something along these lines, although I’m not sure what a CD eating fungus that thrives in “sultry weather conditions” is doing over here in cold, wintery London…

  1. simple really with cheap cds the surgace bubbles with temp changes and moisture changes quite a more noticable prob over in here in central australia where the temp can go from 8 deg c at night as it was this morning to around 43 deg c outside at 4:30 in the afternoon
