    when i switch my 2.4ghz macbook on or wake it from sleep the cd drive sounds like its trying to eject a disk. also when im loading a cd i have to oush the cd pretty much all the way in before the motor takes over. ive literally had the macbook for 2 weeks and its been happening straight out of the box.

    is this normal or a fault?


    thanks!!

    This all sounds normal to me. I don't know what you guys are talking about.

    Yep- it's totally normal. It's the sound of the drive waking up. Mine does it too. I think it's kind of cool.

    a third vote for sounding normal.

    the optical drive looks for a disc and makes a noise every time you turn it on or wake from sleep unless you already have a disc inserted. look at the support doc from Apple explaining this here. but if your MacBook doesnt sound like this id take it to an Apple Store to get looked at.

    also with my MBP core duo i have to insert a disc until about 1.5cm (0.6") of the disc is left showing until it is accepted.

    This is probably a belated response, but yeah, absolutely normal. The MBP does it too, but it's even louder :D
