I bought a Liteon-1693s drive 2 days back but there seems to be a problem.
The drive makes a fairly audible "click/spark" like sound, when a disc is injected.
Also sometimes, I hear the same sound, before the drive spins up.
Should this be something too be afraid of ??? :sad:
Functionally, the drive has no problems. It is reading scratched discs well.
I took it back to the vendor, who then showed another piece.
But that drive to made the same type of sound.
So, the vendor concluded, that there could be no internal problem & the sound might be expected.
Have any 1693s/similar owners noted any similar sounds in your drives ???
Is this something to be cautious about ?
The only sound I consider normal, is the whining sound, that comes when spinning some disks.
