    I'm getting a loud noise which sounds like it's coming from possibly the fan when I try to play a disc from my CSI season. The dvd does play with picture and sound and everything fine but the noise persists until i eject the dvd. It is a loud vibrating sound which starts shortly after i insert the disc. It simply sounds like the fan is hitting something inside the laptop but it stops the instant that i eject it.

    There are no problems with any other dvds that I have ever played on the laptop except these. It's a legit copy as well, not pirated and burned and the discs play just fine on a regular dvd player. It's not a big deal to just watch them on another dvd player but I was more so wondering if there's anything that can be done to easily fix it or if it could be a more serious problem.

    Probably doesn't matter but, it's an older macbook. I bought it in the summer of '07.

    Have you checked to see if there are any firmware updates available for the drive?
