Oh, I know. Still, what I said applies. If any disc isn't clean, flat, and unscratched, it runs the risk of damaging the laser in the ODD. I've never had it happen to any of the optical drives I've ever owned, but it can happen. Just check the discs for dirt, scratches, and warping before using them and it should be fine.
The content on the discs themselves can't damage the drive, but the physical discs themselves can.
