    I would venture to say that it would depend on whether they are left in direct sunlight or not.....

    Depends on a lot of factors: parked in the sun, parked in an asphalt lot, color of the car, etc..
    I used to keep a thermometer stuck in the AC vent in a company truck and my black Continental and I've seen 130 F several times in both vehicles!
    Short answer - don't leave CD's, cassette tapes OR a digital camera in a car (ruined the MB in a Kodak and it cost $140 to fix).

    On a warm, sunny day windows collect light, trapping heat inside the vehicle, and pushing the temperature inside to dangerous levels. On an 85-degree Fahrenheit day, for example, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within ten minutes. After 30 minutes, the temperature will reach 120 degrees. At 110 degrees, pets are in danger of heatstroke. On hot and humid days, the temperature in a car parked in direct sunlight can rise more than 30 degrees per minute, and quickly become lethal.
