HDparm -E: CD-rom drives loose their settings

Hi All,

I always use the following command to make my CDrom drives less noisy:
$sudo hdparm -E 8 -k 1 /dev/hdd

 setting keep_settings to 1 (on)
setting cdrom speed to 8
 keepsettings =  1 (on)

This works great, but when i load a new CD, my drive is once again noisy. Is 
there a way I can set the CD speed permanently?

My versions:
Kubuntu 7.04
$ uname -a
Linux athlon 2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP Wed May 23 01:46:23 UTC 2007 i686 

Best regards, and thanks for thinking with me,
