ND-3500AG: possible to set (OS independent) default CD and DVD speed

have a NEC ND-3500AG

possible to set (OS independent) default CD and DVD speed to
lowest possible (super quiet)?

…or also any desired speed for that matter

example: say I want to boot computer with CD disk…drive defaults to 1x…instead blasting at full speed (waking the neighbours)

much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. I have seen this with an older Plextor CD drive, but everything now uses software and does not work with all drives.

You could try Nero Drivespeed and see what happens. I have seen the settings hold on some drives.

I think it will not work (at least with drivespeed).
