    In addition to the standard motorized noise, My superdrive in my Macbook Pro clicks loudly three times on feeding a disk, and once on ejecting.

    To be honest, I wasn't expecting this loud of a noise, and I'm worrying that the superdrive may be bad. I purchased this machine used a month or so ago, so I don't have a lot of experience with macs.
    It seems to be working OK.

    Is this noise normal?

    Never Ender
    Listen to these samples--->
    If your noise doesnt really sound like the ones listed, you should call AppleCare and ask. Does the computer have any warranty? What model exactly?

    Yes, it sounds exactly like that. I guess there is nothing wrong. It's just kind of unexpected.
    Thanks for the help!

    PS - it's a "macbook pro 3,1" according to the about box. :)
