Have you tried disabling Boot from CD/DVD from BIOS settings ? See if this still causes weird noises.
Btw , it would be good if you can elaborate or explain in more clear manner .

Every time the system boots, or shuts down etc, the system polls the ODD, to see if there is a disk inserted in it, at that time it makes the noise, its normal, can your optical drive read discs normally?

even i have the same problem. weird, it also occurs when i run windows media player.
Its because WMP is trying to see if there is a disc in the drive and the drive is powering up, spinning for a few secs, hence the sound from the motor.

Whenever you insert any media in optical drive, then OS scans the whole media due to autoplay/autorun feature. You can stop it by keep holding the right shift key. It used to work in XP, can't say about 7.
