I installed this disk and both in XP, Vista and Win7 and it is rather noisy.
It keeps on rattling shortly every few seconds, a bit like a search of an empty floppy drive in the old days. The light is also flashing shortly.

So the first thing I have disabled was the windows indexing service, but that did not help :??: 
Any thoughts?

Thanks Wusy.
It made a world of difference after I redid the installation with extra tight material.
