    hello macrumors,

    i purchased a macbook 2010 from bestbuy almost two weeks ago, i have only really internet surfed and added some songs from my ipod using senuti...

    yesterday i started noticing this little noise sort of a sounds like a bug like a scratchy hiss (or something spinning kind of like the noise my ipod classic makes every now n then) its very quick but it happens every few seconds...now mind you it is very faint cant hear it if theres noise around me but if its silent i can hear it...i wanted to know am if its something i should be concerned with or was this small noise there from the beginning and i just started paying attention

    thanks for any advice

    It might be the superdrive checking for disks upon start up

    That sounds like your optical drive cycling. The same sound it makes when inserting or ejecting a disk.
    Is there anything in that drive?

    the noise for the cd inserting n ejecting is pretty loud as on all macs...this noise is pretty faint I really just think its me being a paranoid new macbook owner
