Do You Leave CD/DVD in Drive Or YOu Take Them Out While Shutting Down Your PC ?

If we leave a CD/DVD in a drive, it may corrupt your CD/DVD. And after you reboot your PC, it will search that CD/DVD for any boot options avilable. Normally all new motherboards have the option to boot from the CD/DVD, so if you start your PC, It will look for the NSTDL file in your Drive. It cause you to take some time for loading operating system, and may corrupt your CD/DVD. I never leave any disk in those drives as I want to away from any of the problems. If the CD/DVD was a startup disk, then you will lead to another operating system which was in the CD/DVD. So never leave any disk in your drive.

I always take it out, like previous response, yeap you worry about the boot sequence, but if your disc is not a bootable disc, don't worry. Hrmm i've already been told to remove it, never though how it could damage your disc, maybe it might damange your laptop more, i believe so because you often carry your laptops around, as for desktops, maybe its safe to leave it in there

I would say, take the golden rule approach! Make sure you always take out any cds or dvds after use before shutting down your system. I'm not sure how the cd or dvd would be affected though by leaving them in the system. I think that it's far safer to take them out. Andrew
