Hiya, I got a Samsung SH-S223L, firmware SB02 official, a week ago. When I insert most DVDs, it seems to start to spin up, makes a honking sound like it’s suddenly stopping the spin, then spins again. It does this two to four times for the average DVD before finally spinning up to full speed and reading, but sometimes the process goes on for ages.
More worryingly, rather than spinning up in the end, occasionally the drive just sits there apparently doing nothing with the light flashing, using media which I have been able to read fine in other drives.
Is the sound to be expected? Should I assume fault?
