Hi everyone,

I have an Asus ROG GL552VW-DM464T (similar to GL552VW-DH71) and the optical drive is doing weird noises. These noises occurs always in the startup and sometimes (almost never) when i'm using the notebook. I know that maybe the sound in the startup is normal, but should be always the same and i am worry if this will be worse. So, are the noises normal (i hope so) or i need to go to the technical service?. Thanks for reading.

I think its normal because I open and close the drive a lot and i hear only these two sounds. Also the drive slow down a little bit the pc when i use a program that search the drive units available and a cd icon shows up in the right side of the mouse.

I don't wanna go to the technical service, so if the noise gets annoying, i think i will disable the drive (unless the problem is really important)
