Hi everyone,
I bought this today. i installed it according to the manual and everything was okay. the computer detects it and everything. But, when i tried to play a movie, it was making A LOT of noise while it was scanning or reading the disk....please help.

I already have a cd-rw installed (slave) and this new dvd burner and cd-burner combo is my master.

Please help.

I have windows xp pro

I'm not trying to be funny, but did you check the screws? I;ve seen screw vibrate out on highspeed drives. Also maybe its defective? try and see if you can return it.

Torment was "probably"? refering to the mounting screws.

Was it a cheapie or a name brand?

Oooops, didn't notice your Link. Don't know who manufactures that unit, but the specs and the box look good. ;)

i asked my computer tech friend and he said it is a good brand and has very good specs.

so what's wrong? with the whole can't find disc, even though there is a dvd in the drive?
