Hi, I'm new to the PS2 scene having just bought my PSTWO couple of days ago. Browsing these forums I read that when Backups are burned at higher speed, there is a higher chance of burning-out your PSTWO laser then when burned at low speed. I have hearded the expression "Straining" your laser one two many times, which doesnt seem to make sense. I'm from an Engineering background, however the concept of "straining" a laser beam doesnt ring any bells. Would anyone care to elaborate on this?
