OK, I did my first burn with the new Pioneer SATA burner (on a TY CD-R, no DVDs yet) a couple nights ago and it made some awful noises during the burn, but the burn turned out fine. It just seemed like it was struggling to get the disc moving and just didn't sound right. Of course, I'm still running with the computer case open, so maybe that has something to do with it. Is this normal for the drive?
