Slow down CD/DVD-ROM drive

I’m trying to find a way to slow down the DVD-ROM drive in my HTPC as it’s too noisy during playback. I’ve tried Nero DriveSpeed which works just fine as long the PC is on. But as I use stand-by instead of shutdown, every time the computer wakes up, the setting is gone, not surprisingly though as this is a volatile rather then persistent one.
The real question is: is there any command line utility that does the same trick?
