cracked disc - can it be repaired (part 2)

  muscic lover 11:33 30 May 2005

My other thread has the same title and has been resolved..... but

When you take a disc out of a laptop it has to get past those tiny ball bearings (i presume they hold the CD/ media in place) Does anybody know IF these cause damage to the disc as it is taken out? My main PC doesnt have this ball bearing thing, and therefore i am not worried about media / cd being 'flexed' or the risk of cracks see my last question).

The gaps in my knowledge are amazingly vast it seems , but i am sure there are folk among you who can answer this question!

Once again, thank you for your ideas

I've never had any problems with the laptop disk securing mechanism, indeed find it easier to remove the CD from the laptop than it is to get out of some CD cases. That said still advisable to remove it gently, yanking it out could flex the CD in ways it doesn't wish to go.
