Noise from 7203S?

I just got 2 new 7203S burners, and have tried them both. To my surprise, they make 3 whoosh-clicks when the computer is started, and whenever I close the drive with no media in.

I know they search for media, but my Samsung 203B never made any noise during empty search, so this is a little disappointing, if this is normal behaviour ?

My 7200A also does the same noises, but after one year and a few hundred burns it still works fine.

Thanks. Just wanted to be sure, all 720x makes that annoying noise.

Wanted to ask the same question… thanks. :slight_smile:

Hi. I have a 7200S (which is the same drive as yours, just different firmware) and it does the “3 whoosh-clicks” when I close the tray or its powered up.
