yeah that is supposed to happen. ESPECIALLY if it is burning a disc. burners use a lot of power and all that energy has to be converted to something else and like most things the waste energy becomes heat

yea it is. its caused by the friction between the disk and the tray that its in, plus the lazor is quite hot aswel.
