Thread: DVD reader spin down?

    Default DVD reader spin down?

    Dear All
    I am currently running opensuse 11, and I am really happy about it.
    I have two high speed CD / DVD readers / writers on my system, and if i want to play a CD or a movie they spin so fast and so loud i have to really put up the volume to cope with it.

    Is there a way to make them spin slower, or quieter, that is at the same speed of home DVD / CD systems?
    I do not beleive it is necessary for the drive to spin at 16x to play a commercial CD or DVD

    I understand the question is not inherently dependent on suse's operative system, but maybe there is a linux command to achieve that.

    I know it might sound silly...

    thanks anyway
