    It is harder for your laser to play cd-r backups than dvd-r. However, it's not likely that it will kill your laser over a short period of time. Over time it could make your laser I bit weaker but then again so can dvd-r's (maybe not as quickly though.) You shouldn't have to worry to much about playing your cd-r backups and your laser dying. Just don't play them 17 hours a day:)

    well, if the games you backed up were originally on cd then it should be ok to play the cdr... it's the dvd-rips that could kill your laser (dvd games that you rip to put on cd).
