I just got a Plextor 24/10/40 cdrw drive. This thing is loud. Are these drives usually this loud?? When the drive gets going, my whole house shakes from the rumble of the motor. It doesn't sound broken (no high pitched scratching sounds), but man, it rumbles worse than my cell phone on vibrate.

Are you sure its screwed in tight to the case chassis?

I have one, and between my buddies, we have 3 of them, and they are quiet as a mouse.

The drives that were usually load were the Yamaha drives...

You try any new cd's... or old ones?

I tried all kinds of cds, but it doesn't matter, its still loud. The rumble comes from the motor. And yes I have it screwed in quite tight. Even if I take it out and hold it though, I can feel it vibrating quite a bit.

i think that the best is TEAC: cheap , quality, and not made in China (mine made in Japan)

Hmm, maybe defective.

I personally don't like the Yamaha drives due to passive cooling for the drive ... I like how Plextor put a fan on the back of theirs...

I heard nothing but good things bout the LiteOn 24x burner... Cheap too. TDK is ok. I don't like TEAC products... too many problems personally.

Order online?

TDK's are sweet. I have a friend who has it.

All the drives will get the job done, just a matter of preference

Try to upgrade to the latest firmware (1.03). When I upgraded the firmware on my Plextor it became more quiet. Another sweet function with this new firmware is how great it works with ClonCD

You can find the new firmware here:

Most of you big name drives are good. If you can find a killer price then I wouldn't hesitate. Just make sure it has some sort of Burn Proof technology and you should be all set!
