    So I was watching friends and on my macbook and whenever I'd move my macbook even a little the superdrive would make noises as if the disc was being scratched inside. All the other discs that I tried didnt do any such thing. Possible reasons? Can I damage the internal laser this way?

    I tried the same disc in another 13 mbp - no noise. But the thing is no other discs make similar noise in the mbp. It just that one. Suggestions, speculations?

    Slightly unbalanced and asymmetrical disc in a slightly shoddy superdrive?

    If that's the only disc that has ever done it, I wouldn't worry at all. It was probably just a hair unbalanced.
