New Laptop... Disc drive keeps searching?

Hello friends,

I just got done setting up my new laptop. When ever I open a program that requires some muscle I hear the disc drive scanning for a dvd. I thought maybe I was crazy so I opened the drive and the sound stops all together.

I'm currently using the SSD (there's nothing saved on the mechanical drive.) I'll all but certain the sound's coming from the DVD drive.

Is there a way to turn this off? Is this anything to be concerned about?

Thank you!
