Do you find that the quality of data in your DVD starts deteriorating without any rhyme or reason? Do you take proper care of your DVD only to find that there are numerous scratches on the surface when it is being read by the Reader? Well, you probably are making the mistake of leaving the disc in the reader for long stretches.
Many persons find this convenient because they can avoid the cumbersome task of removing the DVD from storage and placing it into the Reader again and again. Well, the reader spins the disc at very high speeds and the combination of the laser and high speed means that the temperature inside the reader reaches very high levels very quickly. In such a scenario, leaving the disc inside the reader is only going to increase chances of damage.
On the other hand, if you remove the DVD from the reader once your work is done, you will prevent the residual heat from damaging the disc. This is a very small thing but can help you avoid damage to your disc in the long term. You must remember that the DVD gets damaged only because of laziness of the individual.
Inability to store the DVD properly, placing it in a high dust and high heat environment, not placing it in the right case – these are some mistakes that take place just because the individual is too busy to take care of the DVD.
For all its advantages, you must the remember that the DVD is a passive form of data storage. The DVD will do nothing to protect the data. If you do not take good care of the DVD, scratches will take place and the reader will find it difficult to read the data. If this happens, you will need brand new reader that operates at very high speeds to recover data.
