The sun melted and warped all my CDs that i left in my car. Is there a way to unwarp them? (Some kind of heat press machine or something)?
Im bumned out. Over 200 CD's all ruined. All those years of collecting down the drain...They look like pancakes/warped frisbees.

No. Even if flattened again the disc will no longer be perfectly circular.
In any case, distortion that bad permanently damages the layout and information on the reflective silver layer.
Even a slightly warped disc can destroy a CD laser head in moments, and if perfectly flattened a formerly slightly warped CD is often so out of balance that it won’t play reliably or even so bad that the vibration it produces causes it to hit the laser head, ruining it.

You should have ripped them all down to mp3's at some point.

you cant recover them , once warped they cant be flattened out , its the film inside them that holds the data , once that film is bent you cant straighten it out .

Next time you're on the freeway, look at those cargo trucks. They make good use of unwanted CD/DVD's.

No. there is no way to undo that.
This kind of event is called "experience" ---
something you get only After you need it.
Remember it and go on with life.
There were times in the past when I bought over 200 CDs in ONE year.
But I have Always known better than to leave them in an environment
that could damage them!

Try to play them and see if they can still be played If they can be played, then can copy the music to the hard drive and burn some replacements.
