I plan to build a quiet HTPC. I have some ideas on most of the components, but which DVD should I chose?

I've never had a quiet DVD nor CD-player in a computer.

Any sugestions?

    If you use Nero DriveSpeed, you can control the read speed of most CD/DVD drives to make them nice and quiet.

    I use a LITEON DVD writer with this utility and it is silent... :)

    However, do not get an LG DVD writer as they do not respond to the Nero DriveSpeed utilty, and thus will be noisy when playing a CD or DVD!

    Sony's DRU 800

    Hi

    Yous should try out Sony's DRU 800, it run's very silently and smooth,
    the same you can say about the Tray, when opening at closing the drive
    it's very smooth and silent, the funny thing about this is that it's built at the same factory as the Liteon is, but it seems to be a better quality. :)


    Regards Jowda

    Hi,

    Nero DriveSpeed did the trick for me too with my NEC ND-3540. It's not really that noisy, only for CD's it was always spinning at high speed. After installing & configuring DriveSpeed, I hardly ever hear it.

    Regards,
    Michel

    NEC 3520 here, and never heard it!

    I can recommend this one, since it never has any problems with whatever CD / DVD format you put in there!

    It can read everything, just as it can write everything.

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

    I never dealed in detail with this, because I needed just to connect my IRSS, install the driver and directly it worked out of the box with MP2. Maybe other users may confirm, what they did or you tell us which remote you have. There is also an input device manager within MP2 which you can try.
