    My mac mini 2009 cd drive is making couple of noisy clicks when loading cd. It works ok but is that behavior normal?

    Some noise is normal. But you're fully covered for a year. And you can always
    make an appt with an Apple store genius and get their opinion.

    Mine is making quite a lot of noise when seeking/skipping through a DVD. When you make a jump in the movie, it makes a short and quite loud noise, but then goes silent again... Is this normal?

    Mine makes typical loud whining of a laptop drive when seeking/reading and when waking out of sleep. But no clicking.

    Seeking/reading sounds normal, but when loading/inserting the disk it makes clicking sounds, quite noisy. Noisier than any other drives I know.

    Clicking Noises when loading disks is normal. There is a Small plastic barier that goes up and down when loading disks.

    Dnt worry there is nothing wrong with the Mac ;)
