I was wondering why CD/DVD burners can't just overwrite a CD or DVD after it's been finalized and set to read-only mode. I understand that read-only mode prevents further writes, but can't a burner just ignore that and burn over the original data anyway?
I know you wouldn't really be able to store any new data on the disc because it would most likely corrupt everything, but for data-destruction purposes, what's preventing this?
Is there just no software made for this purpose? Does the firmware on CD/DVD burners boards prevent this? Or has nobody had enough interest because discs are easy to destroy anyway?
