Hi, CD Freaks forum members.
Over the years I kept hearing that I should not burn more than 5 discs a day. Going over that might allegedly overstress the machinery in the burner and kill it in the end.
It is not that I care about my drive. Nowadays they are cheap enough to not worry too much about them, but I do care about the data I burn, and, if this thing I’ve kept hearing about the 5 burns a day is true and I burn more than that a day during a period of time, I might end with data loss any, which might be unpleasant given day.
I’ve always though this was just a myth, an urban legend, but I wanted to ask someone knowledgeable about the issue, and this seems the right place for it.
So. Is there any truth on it? Is it a legend? Is is safe to go ever 5 DVDs/day?
