Exclamation Fast CD ROM drives

If you have a fast CD/DVD ROM drive (48X +), be carefull! I just read an article in the latest PC World about CD's breaking in fast drives. the article says that if there's a wrinkled lable or anything else putting the disk off balance, or if the CD has even a tiny crack in it, then there's a chance that it might shatter in the drive. apparently the chance of it happening is only 1 or 2 in 10,000 though.

Thanks for the tip David! I'll have to be careful with some of my older discs.

No problem, Greg! I'm gonna have to be careful too since my 16X DVD ROM reads CD's at 48X.
one other thing from the article I forgot to mention is that this can also happened in some slower drives (32X 40X etc.)
