Finally started the transition from PC to Mac and kicking myself that I didn't do it much sooner. Went to the Apple Store last Saturday (on a date with the wife no less) and bought a new Mac Mini (in my sig) and absolutely love this thing. Have it hooked up in the living room to the 42" HDTV! Anyways to get on topic I have noticed when installing software from disks the Superdrive has a kind of annoying vibrating sound coming from it. It sound like it is only doing it when it's spinning at max speed. I threw in Ironman to see what it would do playing a movie and it was quiet as a mouse. Same result with audio cd. I have done some searching on this and some say it is due to unbalanced cheap disks. And I started to believe that until I threw in iLife '11 last night and it acted the same way my install disk for my Kodak Wifi printer did, noisy. Can anybody give me any insight on this? If it is just with install disks I can live with that, I would just be embarassed if I went to play a multimedia disk with friends and the superdrive started roaring. Does anybody know if it happens while ripping dvd's?
