    DVD-R's are permanent once written.

    DVD-RW's can be erased and rewritten.

    Same thing. CD-R lets you write once. CD-RW lets you erase and rewrite.

    If you want to render it unreadable...
    Take a knife and make X marks on it all over the place..
    Nice and deep

    Also take a marker and black it out a tad...

    Of course...cracking it in half.

    DO NOT put it in your microwave.
