This is completely normal, so no problem if you put any DVD in it. It just spins up to maximum while reading the index.

ThanQ for the points, but wasn't waffleironhead the first to post that it would work, I think it should have been a split at least, I just tried to explain what the DVD player was doing while spinning up.
