it takes a long long timeand I am kind of obsessed by this feature. scan all kinds of media I have now and used before
will it damage your drive a lot?
But it WILL make you paranoid about your media burns in a way you weren't before - I know I am.
Ignorance is bliss! (...but also dangerous)
Plextor px-716A is my first plextor drive and I also do a lot of quality test ( also some quaility test from friends of my university that want to know how good / bad burn his drive the dvd /cd
I dont know if this damage the drive, but is addictive
Who cares if it damages your drive 1-2 years down the line by then you will have better DVDRW drives that are cheaper or you will have moved onto bluray
But still, just curious...does it damage your drive?
I don't think so.
It is just reading the disc.It's no more damaging than playing a DVD on the drive.
Besides, that is all my Liteon is used for. Don't take it away from me.
You could ask the same about your car,If I hit the brakes alot will it damage them!Everything has a lfie expectency,who knows.I would'nt worry about it!
