    i have a new HP about 5 months old well i'm getting this noise from the drive but it doesn't sound like a noise the drive itself would have even if it was messed up.. it sounds like its the computer making the noise. the computer recognizes the drive but when i put a cd in it will not recognize the cd and i get this noise. i can't explain the noise but its not a tick...... once i had a cd drive go out and it had a ticking sound. i have tried reinstalling the drive and a couple of other little things but nothing has helped. it is a samsung cd rw drive


    any clue?
