    Whenever I open Dashboard on my seven month old MacBook, I hear the familiar vvvv-dzzzzz-bvvvvvvt sound of the DVD drive attempting to load a disk that isn't there. It attempts to do this again about once every ten seconds, as long as Dashboard is kept open. Why is this happening?

    Yes. Do I need to remove them one by one until it stops? I have quite a few and don't want to have to set them all up all over again.

    I think he means do you have any that you suspect would cause something like this to occur?

    Hmmm... I removed all of the widgets that had no configuration.
    I still have:
    Google
    Wikipedia
    Dictionary
    Gmail
    TV Show Tracker
    Battery Meter
    Calculator (Not the default one)

    It's still doing it, but not as frequently

    You don't have to uninstall them, but why don't you close them all for the time being, then restart Dashboard (sudo killall Dashboard in Terminal) and see if the problem goes away?
