If you ring the number on the back of the CD case, the helpful lady there
will quickly arrange for new CDs to be posted to you (in a Jewel case!)
with no further questions asked.

My understanding is that this whole batch of APC CDs have a problem.
I have heard of two other instances of the CDs shattering whilst spinning
in the CD drive.
