The kids DVDs that i borrowed from the library are all very dirty.My question is: will this damage the burner?
Since dvd writer is so affordable today. maybe i should buy another one just for these messy discs.
You can clean a DVD with a cloth, soap and water.
Technically, no it wont as its just a laser beam pointed at the disc and the reflections read back.
Of course if the dirt is large lumps of grit etc then it will but I would hope you will remove things like that before using the disc.
And in the worst case that dirt could damage the laser unit/PUH.
Thank you all for the replies.I'll just clean them before putting into the drive :iagree:
