    This may have been answered a million times before or maybe not. I did a search and couldnt find anything.

    I have been meaning to ask this for a while though...

    How do I get the disk drive to stop making the noise when I open my mac? Its like the whirring click sound.

    Thanks guys!

    This has to be a CD or DVD in the drive, otherwise, my MBP doesn't make any noise when I open it up. Remove the disc in the drive.

    Theres no disk in the drive. Its done this since I first got it.

    I know there was an optical drive update or something for the new macbook pro models. Mines the late 2008 2.53 and the update wasnt for my model. So I never installed it. But the update was supposed to fix that as far as I know?

    U can't stop it from making that noise. It's designed for it to do that.

    This is normal and can't be avoided. It's like asking: "How do I get out of bed in the morning without using my legs?"

    For me, leaving a disk in the drive actually eliminated the noise.

    If the disk is spinning. I don't actually do it, but I just noticed it when I did have a disk in.
