DVD Player Speed While playing a CD

I have an issue with my Pioneer DVD Burner. When simply playing a music CD it spins at a horrendous speed and makes quite the noise doing so. Why won't it spin at only the speed necessary to play a music CD like with my home theater system? Thanks!

Home cd players are only designed to spin at one speed. They are not a 40x,48x,or 52x drive. Computer cd roms will try to read a disk as fast as it can even if it doesnt need to.
I would copy the cd to your hard drive and play it from there. And yes it is legal to do it like that as long as you arent sharing it.

No, it's not true. My LiteOn CD/DVD ROM/Burners have been always 100% quiet while playing CD/DVD, and I'm sure it's also true for other drives.

"no, it's not true." Whats not true?
Not all drives are quiet. My main drive is pretty quiet at top speed. I have an older model one that is loud.

I wanted to say that all drives slow down while you play an audio CD or movie VCD/DVD in your computer. At top speed many drives aren't quiet, but that's not the point here. The original poster's drive spins at high speed and makes noise when it's just playing an audio CD.
