CD-R making loud noise, not reading anything

I have a CD-r/DVD and whenever I put a CD in, it makes a loud, almost grinding noise, continues to spin and then doesn't read anything. The D:\ in explorer looks blank. Problem started recently. The last CD read was an old version of the Sims which my computer said it could not install a 16 bit program on XP. What's wrong with my CD-R? Can I just get a replacement bay?

This problem seems to be with the alignment of lens, which can be done by opening the cd rom drive and change the alignment, but if its under warranty replace the drive bay

I just bought my mac and every time I put my computer on my disk inserter thing makes a loud noise could that go away?

When you say disk inserter thing do you mean puting a CD/DVD in to your mac?

Well, it's not possible go make it go away since it is spinning the disk so it could read it.

Whirlpool Duet Washer Making Loud Grinding Noise

not nesseccarrily your pump, possible you have a rear bearing going bad, which will sound as if a helicopter is coming through your laundry room. ( noisy pump can be the issue , honestly a better and cheapre problem to have) in order to determine if its apump problem you can remove the lower access panel and unplug the pump then start the spinn cycle, if it still loud the pumpms not hte issue.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
