	If you're referring to the fierce spinups associated with some CD/DVD 
drives, I believe that you can set the maxiumu speed of the drive with hdparm.  
If you set it to 1x or 2x, you should be able to play in realtime without 
skipping or jet-like spinups.  Of course, for ripping/etc you might want to 
undo that and make it go full-tilt.

	Just a though...
