I'm not clumbsy to make any damage to cd's but YES - CD's CAN get damaged by playing on pc. Oh well, I'll try to reconfigure something and let you know how it goes.

NO CDS CANT BE DAMAGED STREIGHT BY JUST PLLAYNG
but sometimes some dirt or something gets in to drive, rotates with cd and damaging it
if you were in ideal world, where are no "dirts or something" and you play game there, it wouldn't be damaged

Indeed they can be damaged. I have a DVD drive that scrathes anything it plays. Of course, my sister took about 6 months to realise only she used it, and only her dvd's got scratched.

Sorry to bother you russ, but if it get damaged because of some dirt or anything else while your computer is reading it (read: when you are playing) then cd's can be damaged only by playing.

It's only a matter of perception about saying the same thing.

I know there is a way to repair scratched cd's. Seach a little in computer stores and ask there, you should be able to find something which "rebuild" your cd if it's only slighly scratched. It may be some kind of wax or something which fill the tiny gaps the scratches make, I'm not sure... But I'm sure some stuff exist for that.

Also, tiny cracks in CDs can, over time, spread (especially in higher-speed drives) to the point where the CD disintegrates inside the drive. Obviously this is detrimental to the CD and the drive.

My old Xbox that I had before my current crystal scratched brand new discs a few months before it's death. Fable for example was in the drive from the box for about 20 minutes and when taken out was totally scratched.. it played as they were only surface scratches but the drive was definatly responsible.

Yes, CD's can and will be damaged if they are played over and over, and that will happen even more often when they are recordable CDs.

My explanation:

CD ROM drives use lasers to read the data writen in the CD and CD Writers use lasers to burn info in to th media, so what's the diference between between a CD ROM and a CD Writer? It all lies at the "power of the laser", you'll need a stronger laser beam to burn a media.

Playing a CD over and over will cause the laser of the CD ROM drive to gradually contribute to the degradation of the CD track, and it all depends on the quality of the media and CD ROM drive ("cheap" CD Rom drives will probrably have "less" control quality at the laser mechanism, so there is a possibility that they can damage media more often).
