Is it possible to stop my dvd drive from making so much noise when my windows starts up? Its like it reads the whole disk (crysis) even though I dont want to play it.

yeah there is that, but is there a way to make it not read the disk untill I want it to? But I guess I should just leave it like that, just in case I need to boot from disk one day.

What drive do you have? I had a plextor, and it was very noisy at startup. I now have a Samsung 203 which is silent at startup, and reading.

Its allright, I'll just leave it how it is. Its only noisy for about a minute on startup and then it stops. Thanks.

Yeah, my laptop does that too. Now I just get into the habit of taking the CD out. I agree that it is annoying.

Go to BIOS and take it out of the boot sequence.
