I bought it from best buy's website here is the thing I use 100pk memorex CD-Rs 52x's some of them don't make a sound, Some burn quietly but when I try another one it makes a roaring noise, vibrating noise like vrrrrr sounding Sometimes it tends to be loud I have to unplug it from the laptop so it will stop cause it's annoying, But I don't get it is it my CD-R's is 52x a good brand for 8x Burner? Just wondering it's brand new, I just don't get it do I have to set a speed all the CD-R's at the store are 52x the burner goes to 24x I can never see any CD-Rs for that type.

Hi Nicole Alzamora,

Some burn quietly but when I try another one it makes a roaring noise, vibrating noise like vrrrrr sounding


I don't think that it is unusual for a DVDROM to be somewhat noisy on occasion. This might happen if the disc is not placed correctly in the holder or maybe an individual disc is out of balance. The bottom line is that the drive should read/write a disc and be reasonably quiet a majority of the time. If your new drive is "vibrating" so that you have to "unplug it from the laptop" frequently , then it might be a good idea return it to Best Buy for another one.

The 8X in "Toshiba 8x External USB Burner" represents the burn speed with a DVD. It is 8 times faster than the original x1 DVD burners. This drive is also capable of burning CD discs at a speed of x24. The Memorex x52 discs are fine and should cause no problem. They are capable of reading/writing at x52 speed so your use at x24 is not an issue.

I just don't get it do I have to set a speed


Most software used for burning discs automatically recognizes the inserted CD or DVD burning speed capability and adjusts the burn process accordingly. You shouldn't have to adjust speed.

Regards,
Brooks
