Things tend to get warm when you shoot a laser at them for extended periods of time. It's kinda like an ant under a magnifying glass.
can u show us a pic of that?Originally posted by topicolo
There have been instances where if you play a cd for extended amounts of time repeatedly, the localized heating by the laser warps portions of the cd. This is called laser rot, but you have to use the CD a LOT to get it and I think it has been pretty much solved on newer cd-roms.
Look at the upper part of the cd, there is a definite cloudiness.Originally posted by G5orbust
i dont see anythign wrong w/ it (the reflection might be covering it)
But when i went to the site, i could see in the close up pic that it was damaged. I looks like some major scratches or its been melted (both could explain the cloudiness)
