If the noise if coming from the cd drive, it could be that the drive is about to go belly-up.

If coming from the computer, perhaps a good physical clean-up may be required, due to possible overheating and cooling fan(s) being made to work overtime.

If the noise stops when you eject the CD I suspect its the CD drive itself that's noisy. It could be the CD that's unbalanced or warped. Try a different CD to prove the point.

Thank you for the replies.

I have cleaned the area around the fan as good as I can without taking the case off.

On further investigation it would appear that it is only some cd's when played are noisy.....

Thanks

Probably be a good idea also, to run a CD Laser/Drive Cleaning Disc a couple of times.
