Is it possible for my DVD-Rom not to make any noise?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Can someone tell me if I can do anything to make my DVD Rom to be silent when reading discs?

Almost every time I see a movie, for example, I have to turn the speakers real loud in order to cover the noise.

I have to mention that I own a Sony Vaio VPCEH notebook.

If anyone knows how to solve my problem, please tell me.

A CD/DVD-ROM drive does not really make any noise especially when just reading any ordinary disc.

But if you are watching a movie in it the CD/DVD-ROM drive tends to spin a lot faster and you can hear it spinning inside.

The sound is coming from the platform where the disc lands, it generates a little noise because of the spinning motion that the small motor is doing to it. The noise is not that loud and it is even hardly noticeable while you are already watching the movie with the speakers on.

I think your CD/DVD-ROM drive has already a serious problem inside and it needs to be replaced.

Especially if it is already used up too much. Replace your CD/DVD-ROM drive.

Hello Flash.

It is not normal for DVD drives to make as much noise as you are describing.

If you are certain the discs are not the problem, then it may be time to replace the optical drive. 

But since you are using a Sony Vaio notebook, replacing the DVD drive is going to be very expensive.

I suggest you buy an external DVD drive and connect it via USB to your laptop when playing movies. 

There a several cheap slim external drives out there that can do the job for you.

If you happen to have an extra DVD drive for desktops, you can buy a USB enclosure for that and save a few more bucks.

You can also try ripping the movies from the DVD and saving it on your hard drive for playback at a later time.

That way, you won't be bothered by the noise while watching.
