My OEM writable CD drive started making some high-pictched whirring sounds about a week ago. It's not constant, just when I try to save a file to a CD-RW. The file saves, but it takes a bit longer than usual and there is an incessant high pitched whirring for the duration of the save.

did you just try a different brand of media?....sounds like the disk you are saving to may be out of balance.

This particular disc I'm using isn't new. That is to say I've been using it for a while.
