    My Macbook pro has been acting up today and yesterday. I put in a CD [something which I haven't done in a while] and it started making this awful grinding noise and spat the disk out. I have tried multiple disks/DVDs and the same thing keeps happening. I've also tried the disks on a friends windows laptop and they work fine.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I have uploaded a video with the problem: http://www.searchpembrokeshire.co.uk/mbp.mov

    Mine makes a grinding noise, but it doesn't pop out. Maybe yours if defective?

    Maybe you disk is bad? The noise is the drive pulling the disc (that's how slot loading mechanisms work).
