Plextor is planning on releasing a CD/DVD drive soon that will erase all the data on a disc, making data recovery impossible—or so they claim. We're surprised we haven't seen this type of drive sooner.
Most people have been sticking their discs in the microwave and frying it in six seconds, not six minutes. We don't know how well that method works when it comes to professional data recovery, say, by the federales. The Plexeraser seems like it's more thorough.
