View Full Version : Loud optical drive on Portege

18.12.2007, 07:40
Is there any way to configure the *optical drive* on the Portege notebook to emit *less noise* when in use? Is the noise to do with the _speed_ at which it is spinning the CD / DVD?

How do we configure the spinning speed (i.e. 12x, 8x, 4x) to reduce the noise?

Unfortunately there is no way to fully control CD speed.
The only you can try is the Toshiba Acoustic Silencer. This tool allows to reduce CD speed to 2x.
You can download it from Toshiba support page http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com for your Portege Model.

I agree with Robin. Toshiba has designed this small tool to reduce ODD speed and while listen music CD it will be almost noiseless.
