    Alright I just got a sony DVD player... I was burning a DVD when the room I was in was like 80 degrees (upstairs room, no A/C on yet) Well when it was burning it would make like loud sounds like fans blowing from the computer... the it would die down and then it would burn.... then it would do the same, alteranating between the loud sounds and the burning...


    Does this mean that my computer is running to hot? I only have 1 small fan it. It is fine when I'm doing non-heavy stuff.. like aim or internet...


    Should I buy another fan? or is there another problem?

    Its most likely the RPM's of the drive going up and down as it writes to the disk. Most CDRW and DVDRW drives do this. You'll be fine.
