no, i don't have a dvd rom drive right now. i don't want to add unneccessary patches. i did hae a really quiet cd rom drive that made almost no sound and was really cheap. i am now going to buy a dvd rom drive and wanted to buy the quietest drive possible.

I recommend Toshiba DVD drives, I experienced low noise with them. SD-M1712 for example.
