I just love when CD's arrive bent completely in half in the mail. :(

    It's the machines the USPS uses. I am on a CD trading site called swapacd.com, and the labels it prints out says "non-machinable" though I usually ship the CD's in a jewel case just to be safe.

    This one was new and still sealed in its' case. Likely the heat down here kept it from breaking entirely.

    I found some tips on rescuing warped CDs:

    If they're really bent like an U, it might not work, but OTOH someone posted that the polycarbonate wouldn't start melting until 280 F which I strongly hope you're not suffering even in the south.
