    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if the Benq firmware is supposed to make the drive super loud? Whenever it's on the dashboard it doesnt make too much noise which is nice, but during gameplay (not XBLA) it is just really loud. Is this normal because I thought that these new drives were supposed to be quiet. Also, my brother has the same version and everything and his is just as loud.

    -Thanks

    Well it should make some sound when your playing, it's constantly loading and scanning the disc so the drive makes noise. While on dash board the drive is idle pretty much.

    It is on 12x which is the same speed as it is default. I did this because I wanted to be as safe as possible while using xbox live. But if the normal speed is 12x, and it's supposed to be quiter, then why is it so loud. I cant remember if firmware made it louder, or if it was always like this.

    The default read speed and the iXtreme read speed are different. By default, the original firmware will read up to 12x. But the read speed will vary at any time. It's not locked in at 12x the whole time.

    With iXtreme, it's constantly spinning at 12x. So obviously if the drive is spinning at 12x the entire time, it's going to be loud. Using 8x seems to be the most suggested for good read speed and quietness.
