Burned dvd's=damage to dvd players?

Basically,is there a differance from a store bought copy of a dvd to one burned as far as performance of the player goes. I dont think so, but the argument has been raging in these parts for many moons. Any help,serious or wise ass,is appreciated.

I've never heard of this before...
Anyone?
I would think if the dir structure is correct, there should be no difference other than if you are compressing the copy in some way...

Probably depends on the quality of the medium.

I know cheaper discs are more likely to give out coasters or "explode" in a computer optical drive, don't know about DVD players.

I forgot to add: I also think writable DVDs have a different physical structure than "professional" DVDs. While the professional ones have little pits, the writable ones have....something else. I can't remember if it's a dye or something else.

To sum it up. Much like a vinyl Lp of old, store bought DVDs and CDs are pressed. that is, the dots and dashes are pressed into the micro thin metal layer embedded within the plastic.

Burned disks are just that. the same info but burned in, ( I think it is a sort of dye) not pressed. Quality of the burn depends on a variety of factors. The dots and dashes deteriorate over time. Much faster than pressed.
