LG 4163B drive louder with recent media

hello…

I’m using LG 4163B (A104)… for all of my burning I use Verbatim DVD+R 16x (MCC 004) media and I usually burn with 8x speed… recently I’ve noticed that when I try to read some of the newly burned dvds, the drive reads/spins a little bit louder than with the media I’ve burned some time ago… the drive reads these dvds just fine, it’s only this louder noise that bothers me :wink:

could this just be the result of using MCC 004 media from a brand new spindle (do these be of different ‘quality’ depending on the spindle ?)… or is it my drive’s fault (so far I’ve burned a bit over 200 dvds)…

I don’t really see why changing media should cause the drive to be louder. Maybe the drive needs servicing? Still the only way to know for sure, is to try and burn some other discs at 8x and see if the drive is just as loud.

Could also be a silly case of the screws holding the drive in place in your computer case coming a bit loose. The drive would then rattle more during burning.
