    Whenever I insert a disc, the drive rattles or makes weird sounds. I can hear the disc spin faster as the drive reads the disc, what should I do?

    Isn't that normal? No drive is going to be totally silent. Every optical drive I've ever seen has made noise upon insertion of a disc....

    No, its not the normal sound that drives usually make. Its a really loud slicing sound. Sometimes it sounds like a sewing machine. The discs read but its really annoying.

    I crapped myself the first time I put a disc in. I thought i'd broke it!
