    My friend got a cd free along with a text book. While viewing the cd there was a loud sound and the cd had become pieces inside the drive itself. What could have been the reason for this?

    You should have your drive cleaned to make sure that no pieces of the CD are left in the drive ..or they will mess with the lens ..

    Either the cd had a hairline crack / didn't place it properly in the drive / extremely bad quality of cd.

    m8 whatever has happened has happened but now your priority should be to get it serviced by a experienced proffesional else you ma end up shelling out 1000rs for a new cd -rom drive

    The thickness of the CDs should be same at all points.Low quality or Cds with manfacture defects have varying thickness.Event though this is unidentifiable by us,at very speeds in CD Drive,this varying thickness causes imbalance and hits the parts of the CD Drive causing the CD to break.

    Always Check the inside hole( HeHE) of the Media for the cracks they are the main reason for the bang.
