Please don't let this happen to you!!!!!!

    i'm sure it has never been addressed. But i have done my process of elimination and the speaker magnet is the only culprit i can come up with.

    In my experience, a speaker magnet is not powerful enough to wipe a disk of any type, unless it is a huge woofer and you hold the media right up to it. Most likely there is another issue.

    Never put any magnetic media near any type of speakers or CRT monitors.
