Default Does OVERBURNING damage your cd burner?

hey guys,
just noticed today when overburning a cd. that it gave me a warning that overburning could damage your burner.

is this true?

and how much can you safely overburn a 700mb cd?

i managed to do about 740mb ... just wondering if i'm going to encounter any read errors from that disk?

thanks

I have over-burned many a disk and I never had problems with any CD's at all, using a Yamaha burner..

but, yes there would be some risk involved, only a little though and considering the price of burners these days, probably worth the risk, but ultimately your choice.

what about the data on the disks?
have you had any problems with disk corruption?

What kind of cd's are you using. I have a LiteOn 52x32x52 burner, and I use TDK 700MB silvers, and I cant even overburn 1 lousy MB! I'm using Nero 6, but I tried it with other software too.

If your burner is capable of overburning, (and most Lite-Ons are), then your burner will not be damaged.

Nero 6 has a bug concerning overburning. There is a patch for it. Look at the nero site.

Yes in the long run it can. I have heard from several technicians that sometimes the burner can go straight through the center hole becase the lazer has to go so far to the edge it can sometimes go through.

Ah, I just remembered overburning ~750-790mb (Can't be sure..) on a 700mb CD using a LiteOn 48x12x48x burner. It got to about 98% then gave me an error, and the drive tray wouldn't open at all. I restarted and from memory it STILL wouldnt open. Fearing the worst I shutdown, and used my 'CD Opener Thingy' (Piece of ~1mm wire) to manually eject the tray.

After I turned the system back on, the tray opened and closed okay, and the drive and burned CD both worked OK, but I noticed the drive was a tiny bit flakey in some cicumstances. Could have just been in my mind, though.

umm...

1) data on a CD is burnt from the INSIDE to the OUTSIDE of the disc.
2) it is physically impossible for the laser to move past the data surface of a CD

Even if it could, I didn't think CD writers had "star wars" class lasers that would be able to cut right through your burner. lol.

Yep.
Basically the drives that do not support overburning are those where the laser is obstructed from moving past the data surface of the CD.
