i have a new macbookpro basemodel penryn and i notice when i put cds in its makes a sqeeking noise like almost like if a chicken is in my cd drive lol the cds play fine no problems but does your macbook cd drive make that noise???? if it does what does it sound like? i kno cd drives make like a fan noise but this one is almost like a weird errereeeeeggg then fan comes on it ususally happens when the cd goes in. this happens with every cd and its not something that has come and go either. i brought it to the apple store they said it was normal but u couldnt even hear anything due to the fact that there was so much noise around us so i said ok lol what else could i say the service was actually like a joke because it just seemed like they just wanted to tell me it was ok so i could leave didnt like that but theres nothing i can do. ill make a video of it and upload it i dont think this noise is normal!!!!!!! im using atnt wifi for free at a starbucks in the mall pretty cool i thought u had to pay for it lol. thanks guys!!!
