(Without physically breaking, burning, or cutting, of course.)
Suppose you ask me for some data, let’s say some .jpg and .mp4 files, and I copy it onto a DVD-R disk and hand it to you. Is there any way you would be able to corrupt or alter its contents in the normal course of trying to view it on your computer?
For example, what would happen if I had given you a 9Gb disk but your DVD drive only goes up to 4.5Gb? What if you put it into your DVD drive upside down? Or let’s just suppose you have an old computer and your DVD drive is wonky, sometimes it works right and sometimes it doesn’t, without any identifiable pattern or explanation-could that damage the disk?
