Hello everyone,
I recently bought a new laptop. It has got this DVD writer - "hp DVD-RAM UJ8B1 SATA CdRom". I wish to rip a few audio cds at thee same time i don't want to damage my drive. Since in my PC i had ripped few cd's both using dbpoweramp and EAC. And now it is having problems reading DVD's. i doubt this is because of the ultra secure ripping of dbpoweramp which stresses the drive. I am not sure about EAC though whether it stresses the drive as much as dbpoweramp ultra secure mode.

All i need is my Cd's accurately ripped to FLAC without damaging my DVD drive in anyway and keeping it as it is.
1) Since you people may have had issues with your own drive kindly tell me how to rip accurately without causing any stress/damage on the dvd drive.
2)Does ripping CD's cause problems with the drive due to the extreme stress on the laser. If yes then how to tackle it?
3) Is there any link where these issues are discussed in much detail kindly tell me.
4)Is it recommended while ripping with EAC to cool the drive in intervals of few minutes by stopping the process?

Any help would really be appreciated.
