Odd noise when playing DVD on NEC3500

Hi -

I’ve recently started hearing up an odd ‘motor boat’ type noise with my NEC3500 during DVD (pressed) playback. Seems to afflict all DVDs. CD audio, albiet on a different drive (a Lite-On) seems fine. Haven’t noticed any recent burning or ripping problems; just the odd noise. I have many audio programs on my computer and none of them exhibit this problem except DVD playback.

By the way, I use ATI’s DVD playback software (came with my ATI All-In-Wonder); and, I have not installed any new software (or hardware) lately.

Could my NEC drive be doing this???

Any ideas???

if your using the fast version of LD 2.TB try the quiet one.
