I have loved my MBP since I purchased it in 2007. All of a sudden the hard drive is making spinning sounds that can be very annoying especially when I'm teleconferencing. My applecare is up, and I feel like it is going to be expensive to replace the hard-drive when it goes... Any ideas?

Spinning sounds are actually the kind of sounds hard drives make. Maybe what you mean is...unusual spinning sounds.

It's not that expensive (if you do it yourself)...or hard to replace.

What can be expensive (if your hard drive is dying)...is not having important files & documents backed up. Hint hint!

Hope this helps,

Replacing a hard drive is fairly straight-forward. I wrote a little guide as to how to do it here: How to: Upgrade Hard Drive 2009 Macbook Pro 13 although your disassembly would be a little different, the same concept still applies.
