Well yeah it does,

its like a carpet, if you keep walking over it over and over again, it will fade and get damaged over time....


anything will wear out your HDD over time not just your music, other Files on your HDD could wear it down....but it does not mean you should stop playing your music as much because it can be anything.

only suggestion is keep your HDD clean and tidy..make backups of your files, delete old files ect ect...Run Disk Cleanup and Disk Defragmenter every month that helps your HDD and it will make your system run faster

That is why every couple of years you should get a new hard drive.

Of course it will tend to effect your computer..the more music you have the more and more space you will be taking up on your harddrive...

A good investment would be to get an external harddrive.. 40gb is plenty plus you can put programs, games and your music and take it with you to another computer..

It was a great investment for me I have over 10,000 songs and I bought a 250GB harddrive and I love it.. You should defiantly check into it..and not waste your harddrive in your computer.
