    I put in a CD ROM to install a Crazy Machines game on the Macbook, and when I did that the drive was spinning like crazy and it was so loud! But I think that's normal. I remember putting in the utility disc to format the drive the first day I got the Macbook to get rid of the applications that are pre-installed, it was spinning and loud like that too.

    Sometimes the drive will set up a vibration at certain spin speeds, my iMac makes a **** of a racket sometimes.

    some cd's are louder than others (because they arent completely flat). its just the nature of the beast (superdrive (slotload) and cd's).

    i have noticed that my GF's macbook cdrw is very loud now when pulling the cd/dvd in. something it never was before.

    yes mines loud to. and it makes a raquet and when it is ejected, i somethimes grab the cd really fast- as it pops out.

    always sounds crazy when ejecting.
    but this is the norm, and also when chugging away in the machine to- expect a lot of odd noises!
