I am in the process of transferring all of my CD's to MP3's on my hard drive on my new Dell laptop (model 8500). I'd say that I'm doing about 300 CD's total, and I'm a little concerned that I'm ruining the drive by working it so much. I realize that 300 CD's is nothing compared to the collections that some people have built up, however, I love my new machine and don't want to wreck the drive. My warranty expires next fall, and I don't want the drive to die shortly thereafter and be out of warranty. Can anyone tell me if I am "working" my drive too hard? Thanks!
