Plextor Destroys Data on CD, DVD Media


Japanese hardware maker Plextor will release in the middle of September the PLEXERASER, a device that will help users and enterprises avoid leakage of sensitive data stored on CD/DVD media by destroying them in a few minutes.

The device looks like an ordinary PC drive and will be available in the Japanese market first, for about 25,000 yen.

The product operates as a standalone external device, which means that no PC connection is required. When a disk is inserted into the drive, its data are automatically destroyed.



The PLEXERASER adopts the "PlexLaser Del" technology, which uses the laser power in order to destroy the recording layer of an optical disc (organic pigment layer), making the reading of the disc impossible. A fully recorded dual-layer DVD will be erased in six minutes. According to Plextor, the specific data destructing method is more environmental-friendly and allows easy recycling of the discs, compared to the physical destruction methods for CD/DVD media used by the optical disc industry.

The drive supports 8cm/12cm DVDR DL/R/RW and CD-R/RW media. It doesn't support erasing of CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, and DVD-RAM discs.
