    Hello.
    Is it normal when you put a cd or a dvd into the drive, seems like the drive is closed, and you need to adjust the position of the cd so he could enter!
    Someone could help?
    thanks a lot

    So your saying when you slide it in, it won't automatically "suck" it in right away? You have to wiggle it around in order for it to recognize that it's there so it "sucks" it in?

    You should have to put the disk in about 3/4 of the way in before it sucks it in automatically. If you mean that you have to put the disk in at an angle :eek: then something is wrong, otherwise it sounds pretty normal to me.

    To OP, I re-read your post and finally know what your problem was. My response - No, I never have to fish around in order to stick the disc in. It's smooth and effortless. You may want to take your MB to the store, and compare it with other display models.

    No, my drive never felt 'closed' when I insert a disc. My drive is HL-DT-ST DVDRW GS21N. If you have the same one, then yours definitely behaves differently than mine.

    Having said that, there's no need to panic. You have a year (of warranty) to test it out. If it's really defective, it's an easy task for Apple to swap out the drive.
