DVD duplicator… and a destroyer

Img413 974
For $699 this drive can duplicate 6 full DVDs per hour or 12 full CDs per hour with a 25 disc capacity and has a cool little robo arm that does most of the work [via] – Link. I’ve seen a few DIY versions (and we’ll likely see more) – but it’s not a bad tool to bookmark if you ever need to do a lot of duplication and have a little budget (good for making custom Linux live CDs). Comes with software called “Riptastic”…

But, if erasing data is your thing, the Plexeraser can erase a DVD or CD in 6 minutes – Link. A little odd, “PlexEraser” was a utility on some Plextor drives, now it’s a stand alone device… a hammer or microwave might be cheaper/faster.

    Yep, whacking them with a hammer would be the cheapest and – in my opinion – the best way to destroy old discs. Freezing the discs for a few hours before hand makes them very brittle so they shatter better.

    Many bigger paper shredders can now destroy CDs also.

  3. Shadyman says:

    Shattered CDs can be reconstructed. You can get shredders that shave off the data part of the CD at places like Radio Shack

    You could also get a used Bravo II DVD duplicator and printer for $1200-1400 on ebay…being able to burn and print without messing with it is priceless.
