Silencing hard drives, optical drives and other storage devices
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
I picked up a NEC (3550A i think) DVD RW drive and i'm using it to play DVDs with SAGE TV. It is usually quite quiet but during some DVDs it has the tendancy to spin up. I am running windows 2000 and DMA is enabled. What would cause it to spin up and how can i fix it?
My drivespeed has an option "restore speed settings at startup" you should deselect that optoin as I.
