E-Hammer and Smart Erase

Hi, does anybody know the detail of E-hammer(ASUS) or smart erase technology?

In fact, I have a easy question; will the smart-erased disk recognized as being all of bad-sectors?

If the erased sectors is bad sectors, is there any DVD-writers and tools that can destroy the given sectors?

Re: E-Hammer and Smart Erase

SmartErase is one of two things: a quick or a full erase

A quick erase will destroy the Table of Contents, which results in no drive being able to recognize the disc at all, and you will not even get a chance to look at the data. The data itself is not destroyed, so it could be retrieved by a data retrieval company with specialized equipment.

A full erase destroys everything on the disc. Presumably a data retrieval company will not be able to retrieve the data, although I'm not aware of any tests proving one way or the other if this is actually the case.

I don't know if E-Hammer is exactly the same as SmartErase.
