I've found that these DVD drives will make noise from time to time. I would suspect the media and not the drive as you say the Memorex media is quiet. If it turns out to be the drive they are very easy to change out and not very expensive. I would keep trying other media and maybe it's just having problems with Phillips media????

Monitor makes a noise
My computer monitor, HP LP3065c it's 30", makes a very very faint noise when it comes on. Is this normal? If not what can be done? I've had it since it was first released on the market several years ago and I'm wondering if it may be getting tired. Thanks for your help.
