(i got there from reading some of the threads here)
You’d think a CD could handle 52x, right? After all, they make drives that fast… but apparently that’s not in the Playstation black-disc spec. I tried playing GranTurismo on ePSXe, and it exploded right in the drive!
Shockingly, we all got hit with shards of CD (which were slowed down when they blew the faceplate off my CDROM drive), but the computer was fine, and the CDROM still works today, after dismantling it and removing all the shattered plastic.
and this as well:
(its not a sony PS disc though)
so has anybody ever had their vintage ps collection shattered this way? i’ve had 2 of my old PS disc from 10 years ago which i brought with me when i moved overseas and it was a year back when i had it spun for 2 minutes at 52x speed in a DVD DRIVE and they were fine and came back out without any damges, but then again, it was only for 2 mins (i was only testing them to see if they’re still readable) as these two are all that i have in my possession, i don’t have any more PS discs to do any further testing. so i was wondering if anyone has encountered this problem before. thanks a lots!
