bimbobo -> DH-20A4P very noisy.. (3/30/2008 6:43:10 AM)
Hi, I bought a new PC and the DH20A4P in it, it's very noisy. I use the latest firmware and the device burns perfectly. The noise though is killing me, compared to the Liteon 1653S I had in the older PC. Is this normal? The PC is 1 month old... I burned 3 times in total. I would like to know what I can do to reduce the noise, or to hear whether there is a chance the burner is "broken".I was using a DVD+RW from Verbatim 4X to burn and afterwards to read the burned content (2000 or more photos) but the noise is mostly reading the same DVD+RW to read the content.

I would return it, sounds like a defective drive.
You did, however post on CDFreaks that you flashed the drive and now it is quiet. Did it suddenly get noisy again?

Well, it was a bit better, but after some more tries, the noise is still there and especially at the lower speed..
I am in doubt whether this is normal considering the speed.. but the "shop" told me they could trade it back for a new.
They can replace it with a Pioneer.. will it be better, I do not read good things about Pioneer burners.

Yes, I'd go ahead and try the Pioneer, besides, it's a better drive. [;)][:D]
