    Weird sounds when inserting disc
    When I stick a dvd or any disc into the drive slot it makes weird sounds like a vhs recording or rewinding. Being the fact that i have never owned an mac before i was wondering if this is normal or if it suppose to be seamless.

    It's a common sound. No issues there. I was a bit curious about it when I first got mine but after confirming it with multiple people I have found that it is a common sound associated with mounting the disc in the slot so nothing to worry about.

    Unfortunately, the MB isn't designed with noise insulation that well, in regard to the CD drive. It's normal, no need to worry.
