    When I go to 'About this mac' > 'more info' and click on the SATA option, the optical drive makes a lot of noise (seemingly checking it's there every time). I also use an iMac at work and this doesn't happen - is it normal for the MBP to do this every time? It also does it at startup, plus takes 2 minutes minimum to quieten down after inserting a disc or asking the disc to do anything.

    It’s normal.

    Just be glad optical media is on the way out. In a few years we won't have to deal with it.
