About MediaEraser

MediaEraser is a simple tool for erasing optical media (CD-RW and DVD-RW) on MacOS X using the MacOS X Disc Recording framework. It doesn’t do anything you can’t do with Apple’s Disk Utility or Roxio’s Toast, but it’s much simpler to use.

System requirements

MediaEraser 3.0 has been tested on macOS 10.14.6 and macOS 10.15. It should work on all Intel systems running 10.10 or higher.

MediaEraser 2.0 has been tested on MacOS X 10.7.5 through MacOS X 10.9.1. It should work on all 64-bit Intel systems running 10.6.8 or higher.

MediaEraser 1.0 has been tested on MacOS X 10.2.8 through MacOS X 10.5.4. It should work on most (if not all) releases above MacOS X 10.2.

You also need an optical drive that supports RW media that is supported by the Disc Recording Framework.

Installation instructions

To install MediaEraser, download and mount the disk image. Drag the MediaEraser application to a suitable location on your hard drive (such as the Applications folder).
