So ive had my new build built for about 2 weeks now and everything is going great. My only main complaint is my CD rom drive. I bought a cheap sony dvd rom for $15 at microcenter and im starting to regret it. When i put a game in the drive it legit sounds like my computer is getting ready to fire up and launch up in the air, fly out my window and never to be seen again. Ive looked online for a so called "quiet dvd drive" and haven't gotten much answers. I would like to watch movies/ play games off CD's but when the drive starts spinning it is way to noticeable. Been paying extra just to download games for i dont even had to deal with it. Anyone got any recommendations on what i should do? or know a dvd drive thats not so loud? Thanks

use software to make an iso file and play it in a virtual cd/dvd drive

something like daemon tools

that may work

once you have made the iso it plays in a virtual cd/dvd drive so is totally silent

also saves scratching your cd/dvds

i just downloaded daemon tools lite and tried it with diablo 2 and it seemed to work.

Does this only work for certain games?

some games with strict drm may prove more difficult--even though you own the original game

in the options of daemon tools tick all the emulation options that may help any ones that wont play
