I just bought a brand-new Macbook, fully equipped with Mac OS X Leopard (or whatever it's called). I have worked on Windows all my life, and this is my first Mac, and while I'm still getting my feelers for the system--is my CD drive supposed to do this?

I recorded it taking the disk. Click here.

I suppose I thought that my MacBook was supposed to just take CDs automatically, and I didn't have to jam them in all the way. Am I delusional? Does MacBook Pro only have the self-grab ability? Every CD I've put into my MacBook's drive does this. It sounds scary, but it seems to work perfect.

Help?

It does make a sound and you have to place it in almost all the way for it to grab.

That is the sound of a properly functioning slot load drive on your Mac.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Mine does this too, wondering if it's normal. Yes then?

I'm pretty new to mac's, but when I got mine a few weeks back one of the Software Updates was a firmware update for the drive, to make it a little bit quieter.

But Yes it does sound loud and broken when you put cd's in, and it does feel like you need to push them in a bit too far. Small trade-off for such a beautifully crafted slotdrive.

I actually like that sound..... I think it's real space age. When my Mac's running a bit hot and the fans get cranking, I like to put in a disc then, and listen to the take off sounds combined
