I am currently using my Pioneer A06 to rip dvds. Despite the fact that it rips at 2x, and has problems with scratched discs, it is a very reliable. But, if I constantly use it to rip, then burn, would the life expectancy of my drive drop? Should I use it only for burning? I am planning on buying a DVD-Rom dedicated to ripping dvds soon anyway, just something I was considering. I used my old CDR/DVD combo drive for all my cd purposes, but it died after 8 months (probably because it was a samsung).
