He means: Will "erasing" the CD-R make a CD-R writeable once more.

Answer: No.

I think the joke is that you're (literally) burning a "burned" disc. :)

No, the thin layer of metallised materiel gets vaporised rendering it useless.

But it is a good thing if you want to permanently erase a data-disc.


It was a flyback transformer with a HV capacitor connected in parallel across it to give the sparks more grunt.
