There is no way a normally functioning copy program can damage an original while trying to copy it.

Now, plenty of people have accidentally swapped their original for their copy during the process. If you do that, and it's not write-protected, then you can damage it.

Hi. While not directly copy related, I am aware that certain titles from OziSoft that use later versions of their loader, which I've dubbed "Heystack" can be damaged by quickly opening and closing the drive door while the areas on tracks 36, 38 and 39 are being checked. I believe this is what caused my copy of uridium to break.
I've also seen some cyan loader titles that have been bought in Australia that seem to have been engineered to only load a certain number of times before breaking.
However, I see no reason why simply trying to copy a disk would ruine it.

If the disk is write protected, it does not matter what you do with the drive door, it would be physically impossible to damage the disk.
