Actually as I've already seen this image I can ellaborate. I've seen this happen once before to a mate of mine. His cd drive overheated and shattered a brand spanking new copy of Elite Force 2.

.....and this is exactly the reason why Istill believe that Activision should release both A1 and A2 as freeware downloadables.

CD's are surprisingly hard to break, I took to one with a hammer before and I couldn't get it to shatter. (actually, when ditching old computer components have a go at them with a hammer, they are incredibly hard to destroy! I am not anywhere near as cautious adding components now, I figure that if I can't destroy them intentionally with a hammer I am not likely to do it by accident)

I am very impressed with how totally that is destroyed, have you any idea of how you can replicate that effect on another CD ROM? I guess it must have been a stupid amount of power to the laser to a point where it started acting like a Star Wars style laser.

thats what happened, the drive must have damaged the disc, then it got caught while spinning at around 40,000 rpm.
