I just got a new ASUS laptop that came with Windows 8. Being the computer geek I am the very first thing I did was upgrade to Pro with Media Center. The problem I'm having now is that every 20 minutes or so the system will read the DVD drive regardless if I have anything in it or not. I've tried uninstalling all the ASUS bloatware and still the drive reads fairly regularly. The only AV software I have installed is Windows Defender and It appears not to be scanning the optical drive. I'm at a loss here.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
