Hey, I just got another Saturn (you don't want to know what happened to the first one), and it is the 20-pin with round buttons. If I understand correctly, it is the model that is the easiest to mod, and the one that people have been most successful with so far. Since mods allow you to play backup copies of games, I was wondering if the system will be damaged from reading CD-R discs all the time. I understand that its quite a possibility because I have a friend that had a modded PSX that didn't hold up long against the backups, but the difference with that is he was using an Action Replay that simply connected to the back of the console and used a spring in the cd door to fool the system into thinking it was always closed; the Saturn mod is soldered to the interior, and it does not require a spring to work. Is the laser damaged from reading burned discs, or does everything work as it would on the original copies of the games?? Thank you greatly for your time and help.

Thanks for the help. I always burn CD-R's at the lowest possible speed, so I guess the only other precaution I can take is to buy high quality discs... What kind of discs would you recommend, and what is the longest time a console has lasted you running on burnt games? I haven't purchased a mod board yet, but I plan to in the near future. So far I've only looked at Jandaman and Racketboy, but I don't know much about them. Thanks again.
