That could be the average lifespan of a CD Writer but I have never heard this.  Electronic equipment has a limited lifespan.  Although the average can be given, that is no guarantee that it will last that long or won't last much longer.

I've never heard of such a thing.  CD duplicator units, which use regular CD-R drives can make 100s of copies a day.  If they only lasted for 3000 you'd be replacing them every couple of weeks.

I think you heard a myth from someone who doesn't know what he's talking about.
