with programs like nero drive speed? iirc doing that caused my old old old sony cd-roms to start reading discs poorly… or was it just a coincidence?
nothing to do with those tools. when you say reading poorly, what do u mean exactly, do you mean “slow”, “drive takes a while to recognise disc” etc…try to be more specific
yes it is safe and I think the two events are unrelated.
it was very long time ago that i had it happen, but it did happen on two drives, so i got worried. what i meant that it started taking very long to recognise some discs… or it would sometimes just spin without recognising them etc.
