Then usually I go in and double click the icon to Auto Run, could be my settings I guess, although I haven't changed them.

I know this was a bit late for your rig, but if you notice sluggish (and bought the one I did) we might look into the drive details together and find out if it's something else

Then again I have Chaotic Luck in life, so it could just be mine.
Hey, thanks for your post and input.

Well, I actually noticed exaclty the same ting you did, the slow response of my DVD drives at times. I thought this is just normal and all DVD drives would take a few seconds to load the DVD. But if there is a fix to it, let's try to do something about it.

How's your PC doing? Did you get that HAF yet?
