Mac makes loud sound when burning cd in itunes

It doesn't happen all the time but sometimes my mac when buring a cd in itunes it makes this loud sound and vibrates the whole laptop! I always stop it and sometimes have to maually take the battery out or turn it off to make it stop. I thought maybe it is a fan issue so I bought one of those pads to spread the heat out. Maybe there is something wrong with my disc drive?

    I have only had the laptop for a year. I would say I have only burned 5 cd's tops. I haven't burned any dvds. I was thinking about bringing it to the genius bar but it doesn't do it all the time, but maybe I will.

How old is the MacBook? Have you done a lot of CD/DVD use? I would say the drive maybe going. Take it to an Apple store and the Genius bar to confirm.

Hi- I've just inserted a CD into my MacBook Pro


CD Stuck in Device
First try the normal methods to remove the disc. Drag its icon to the Trash can in the Dock or select 'Eject' from the File menu. If you are running a virtual machine, e.g. VMFusion, ensure that the CD is disconnected from the virtual machine. This will sometimes allow the CD to now show up in Mac OS X. Shut down the computer and start up whilst holding down the mouse button. This may take some time, but keep your finger on the mouse button right up until the disc comes out or the log-in screen has appeared. If you have Toast Titanium installed on your computer, choose EJECT DISC from the menubar. Sometimes you can successfully use the eject disc button in iTunes even if the disc is not visible to the Finder Open Disk Utility and choose the disc you wish to eject in the left-hand pane, then click on the Eject button. Some Macintoshes have a paperclip hole that you can insert a straightened paperclip into, manually triggering the eject mechanism. Open Terminal and type "drutil tray eject" to eject the disc/tray, and "drutil tray close" to close the tray. Restart the computer while holding down Command-Option-O-F, to enter the Open Firmware prompt. Type "eject cd" without the quotes, and press return. The disk ought to eject. To start into OS X, type "mac-boot" without the quotes. Press return, and the computer will continue with the startup. (This will not work on an Intel Mac. There is no Open Firmware on Intel Macs. ) If your computer has an eject button on the keyboard, restart the computer holding down the Option key. When the startup disk selection screen appears, let go of the option key and press the keyboard's eject button.

Same CD burning problem


You can try a firmware update for that drive or it maybe the discs your using are low quality.You can try using a Qtip with very little alcohol on it and clean the eye a couple of times.But be gentle when doing it.Also clean the shiny rails on what the eye moves back and forth on.Also make sure the software you are using to burn with is compatible with your drive.You can download Ashampoo Burning Studio free and use it i think for 30 days free.Also CD BURNER XP is free and very compatible with most drives.
