How much does pi/po scan hurt your drive?

it takes a long long time
and 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?

Who knows?!

But it WILL make you paranoid about your media burns in a way you weren’t before - I know I am.

Ignorance is bliss! :stuck_out_tongue: (…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 :stuck_out_tongue:

I dont know if this damage the drive, but is addictive :slight_smile:

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

exactly

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!

Absolutely correct.
