    The platters are actually electroplated with a cobalt alloy. Platinum
    coating is only microns thick. Really not worth much

    platinum parts. Interesting.

    these things for pennies.. you can spend your time doing more lucrative

    Hi. This is Buddy the Woodworker. Today I took a hard drive apart. I noted
    the cover which you say is stainless steel was magnetic. So, can it be sold
    as stainless. I was under the impression that only non-magnetic stainless
    was worth anything. It may be different in the UK. Anyway thank you for
    making cds.
