sharing files off of a CD-R

don't know if this has been asked before but...

if someone wanted to save some space on their harddrive would it be possible to share file over a p2p network just by putting some mp3's on a disc and share from your cd-rom? the only bad thing about it would be if you wanted to share lots of files you would have to encode them at 128kbps.

Yeah, you can do this with winmx anyway. Just add the files on the drive to your shared file list.

Sure you can, but I wouldn't recommend it since it will eventually damage some of the parts in the CD-ROM when heat is beginning to build up...

That also depends on the drive speed and the drive brand. Usually, faster drive= more heat.
My 2 drives don't heat a crap the discs as they don't spin too fast.

You can lower the speed using nero drive speed:
