Loud MacBook Drive Sounds Listen and Compare


Think you have a loud or noisy CD/DVD drive in your MacBook / MacBook Pro?

Apple was kind enough to record the noises from SuperDrives installed in MacBooks so that we can compare our drive sounds to that of “normal” SuperDrives.ย  In my opinion, the SuperDrives make horrible loud clunky noises completely unbefitting of sleek laptop like the MacBook or MacBook Pro

Listen and compare your cd/dvd drive noise to these official Apple “SuperDrive” sounds.

I’m not sure why, but I can’t help but laugh when hearing these sound clips.

    Thank you for this post. I had a good laugh too but unfortunately the startup sound is the one I’m experiencing. Funny how they say this is normal yet it sounds far from normal that any computer sound should make. thanks again!
