Dvd drive noise issues
Do you guy ever experience when putting in a dvd into your dvd drive and it just ramps up in noise due to spinning so fast.

I need advice from you guys out there on what I can do to help with this noise issue.
My computer itself is pretty quiet but it seems like when I put the dvd into the dvd drive for either burning or reading, it becomes the loudest part of my computer which kind of sucks. :censored:

the dvd drive I have currently is:

Samsung SH-S243D/BEBE SATA 24X Black DVD Writer OEM

I'm assuming it's at which the disc is spinning? and what happens if I burn at slower speeds?

off balance discs are the biggest source of noise.... that and cheap tool-less cases. if you have the option to screw down your drive then do so. a reduction in spindle speed will also reduce the noise some.

Take the drive out of your case and sit it on the shelf. :D That's what I do.

It is easy enough to hook up the times you need it, unless you are needing it all the time.

The only time I've used a CD is to install windows.

And these days, you can do that off of a USB stick anyways...
