This has bothered me for some time now.
When downloading a file from the internet, the browser/save file window gets stuck for about 3 seconds because the optical drive is loading like crazy. Besides, it's really noisy so I don't want my optical drive to do anything unless necessary.
This also happens sometimes while browsing my secondary hard disk drive.
Is there a way disable this behaviour? Why is it necessary for the optical drive to do anything at all when I'm not even using it?
