seems as if no one has an idea.
Some questions that might help to narrow down the issue:
Is the drive still under warranty?
Did you have that sound from the beginning?
Also, do you have that sound with all media, you are burning?
Thanks for checking in. I don’t know if the warranty is still valid. I don’t think it would be since I have had the drive since January of 2007. I don’t think that I kept the invoice since everything was working fine. The sound didn’t appear until recently. I have burned discs with Sony and Taiyo Yuden. Both discs have made the sound.
