My laptop's optical drive (Optiarc DVD RW AD-7560A) is quite loud when reading a disk. For my purpose I don't need reading at full speed, and 8-16x would be more than enough (1-4x would do as well). Could you please suggest free software which would allow me to slow down the drive when needed?
What I tried:
- MagicSpeed from Samsung - doesn't work, needs Samsung drive
- Nero DriveSpeed from Nero 9 -- works, but only 30-day trial
- OptiDriveControl - works, but only 30-day trial
