DVD Idle Question: Can it slow down my drive so it's not so loud?

When watching movies on my HTPC, the DVD reader spinning up to 16x and back down is very distracting. I have no need for the caching feature of DVD Idle if my drive is so loud and distracting. Would it be possible to add a feature to DVD idle that prevents the drive from spinning too fast, such as 4x max speed instead of 16x? This would solve my loud drive problem. I’d take this feature even if I couldn’t use caching.

(I know this section is devoted to DVDFab, sorry for the slightly off-topic post).

This might work but not with all drives. Costs nothing to find out…
