An article over at MacFixIt points out that Apple has posted a Knowledge Base article wherein the compay offers several sound clips as to noises a MacBook and MacBook Pro’s slot-loading optical drive can make. The clips cover activities such as waking from sleep, burning a disc, importing files into iTunes and insertion/ejection.
The Knowledge Base article offers a good basis of comparison between what noises your MacBook or MacBook Pro’s drive may be making and whatever you’re experiencing on your end. In the end, the drives are a little noisier than one might expect, especially given the activities they tend to go through.
Take a listen and if your laptop’s hard drive noises seem excessive, then it might be time to take the next step and take the unit in for AppleCare service.
