Hi guys,

My Sh3 dvd makes a roar likea jet engine in my dvd drive.

other dvds run silently on the same drive...however few discs make similar noise too.

but I got to say that the Sh3 dvd is scratchless, brand new, works perfect

but it just makes A LOT OF SOUND.

I wanna know if anyone here has similar issues?

cheers.

I had a funny noise the other day i was hiding on the bottom trying to evade two destroyers, listening intently through my headphone to the hydrophone to get a bearing were they going away or was it certain death when suddenly there was a high pitch whining noise i jumped would they detect the strange noise i checked the crew i was at silent running so no repair or torpedo loading noises the enemy warships were getting closer i shouted out in alarm

lol! for a moment I was thinking of writing...

"**** you! come out of the sh3 world and read the post properly.." http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif since I was thinking you seriously misunderstood the question.

but you got me there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

well! I still don't know why the sound though. I looked at other cd's which I tried again and few of them make the similar sound.

it's starforce plus prolly you have lite on or some similar dvd? Starforce checks your cd, and make many "searches" on it, and that make some time and noise to complete.

StarForce is enrcypted into the disk, by using Bad-Sectors to cover and hide itself from people looking to isolate it from the rest of the encoding.

Your drive makes and odd, and over worked noise, because it's actually reading information off bad disk sectors. And thus it is spinning and attempting to read it harder, for lack of a better term.
This is common practice for enrcypting copy-protection on the disk it'self.

Have you considered the possibility that your disk is ever so slightly warped, or is silghtly off balance because of a tiny physical discrepency?

If you know anyone else with a copy of SH3 try it and see. If it's the software both discs will behave the same way, if it's a physical defect they will behave differently.
