I'm sure that'd be effective, for various reasons (heat and magnetics
aren't friends, never mind the incineration of the contents).  But I
wouldn't advise trying that for personal drive destruction.  No doubt
the drive's are built from stuff hazardous to one's health.

Lot's of fun though, I'm sure.  I have a friend who's got a video of him
burning a Windows CD, literally - the installation disc being held over
a gas flame.  I've toyed with the idea of doing it myself.  ;-)
