Moo on Wake-Up

Every time I boot or wake my system, the optical drive "moo"s at me. Anyone else get this? Not a huge thing... just odd.

The Best Answer

While Jimmie's take on the 'sound' is interesting, I can at least confirm that this is normal. When the drive receives power (on power-up or wake -- even if you hit eject after it's been idle a long time), it initializes and makes this mechanical noise.
This is 100% normal.
