Just to clarify, do you mean that the cdrom (the $1 or so disc) or do
you mean that it damanged the drive itself (the $50-100 drive)?

Since the drive has a laser, I can see that a bad app/driver could point
that thing at the wrong spot on the disc and wreck it.  It would be a
whole 'nother ball of wax if we risk killing hardware running a standard
