Would you post some system information? Manufacturer and any information you have on drive itself might be helpful.

it's a vista configuration issue, not a hardware issue. gentoo doesn't do it, the short time that i had xp on here, it didn't happen.

Re: dvd drive won't stop spinning
I'm in the same boat. Any luck yet?

I'm running Vista Business x64 on a Dell Latitude E6400. My DVD drives spins constantly even when I'm not using it.

My search indexing options are all shut off. I do not have any anti virus software running.

As far as I know there is no program that would be accessing my DVD rom drive, unless I'm overlooking something.
