Idle Spin Up On CDR/W

Hey folks!

Lately I have been noticing that when my CDR/W drive is idle, every now and then it will spin up for about 3 seconds, spin down, then sit idle again. This happens about every 20 minutes. It's weird, but it's even more weird when it only does it some of the time.

I have a Panasonic 7585 burner, and up until about a month ago this never happened. I even formatted recently and the same thing. Strange...

What O.S. were u using before ? XP or other ?
Might be the XP accessing your CD from time to time.
There is some registry settings to stop that.

What type of MB do u have ?

read the tweaks... XP has its own burningprogram that messes up everything. If you disable it, the CD-r might run smoother...

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
