NEC 3550a DVD movie playing drive noise



I just purchased the nd-3550a i was wondering is there anything that can be done the DVD drive spins faster than is needed for movies crating noise

Or should i return the drive for one that is quiet any suggestions are welcome.


You may use drive-speed utility to reduce the speed but also you may consider buying a Benq instead. Another feature I observed on my previous 3520 unit was that reinserting the same media again leads to a slower speed so try this first.


What benq should i be looking at.


1640 or newer. They automatically reduce reading speed if no huge data transfer is deemed.
