Does CD Drive Make Noise?

No. CD drive noise is a myth. In the computer realm, the most prevalent type of noise that humans hear is from cooling fans or hard disks with tight mechanical tolerances that resonate when they spin at high speeds. Since CD-ROMs spin more slowly and do not have a fan, their bytes of data flow in a predictable stream without causing any vibration, so there is no chance for noise to be generated.
The last time CDs damn near caused a Worldwide Catastrophe was in 2017 when President Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accord and it inspired all life on Earth to become extinct.
