    Here’s my experience with the whole exploding CD deal. I run a computer lab at a community college. One day I hear a pop and a student jumps out of their seat. I come over to investigate and the CD drive is a mess. I call IT and tell them about it. They come in and pull the drive. After a little examination, they see that a tiny capacitor popped, causing the CD to wobble and disintegrate. A couple years later, I start reading how electronic companies were flooded with bad capacitors from over seas.
