    Guys I just wanted to know if there're extra ways to preserve the life of your internal dvd drive, besides the obvious like using an external burner....does defrag and disk clean up help? is there any other ways u guys know of....thx, appreciate it

    Other than disconnecting it? No

    You can't defrag a dvd-rom drive.

    Optical units, as well as all other hardware, wears out with time and use. Keeping it clean is about all the maintenance that is possible or required.
