Yes normal. There is a Hard Drive at the bottom of the Bluray Drive. All systems disk drive make noise. It's just the drive seeking. If you can hear it with the TV volume up then i would be worry. For bluray watching it doesnt matter

My slim does it as well.  Especially in NHL10 on the main menu, the drive is reading every 5 sec for no apparent reason.  During the game, no noise at all.

I just got MCLA (complete) in the mail (just now).

 

I put the disc in - all looked familiar (I have Remix for my PSP-300)

 

Muted the music and ................ OMG "what is that noise"

 

I've muted every game I have and left some on mute while I am playing them.

 

I've never heard a sing peep out of the drive until this game. It has constant bumping and grinding and nothing is being played - it is just sitting there waiting for me to pick the first car.

 

This is a slim I got on Aug 28th ...... never a peep before.

 

The bumping and grinding (sounds about like a mouse or my dog snoring) finally stopped.

 

(all three cars are dogs but - I know that up front lol)

 

It saved my pick and is still seems quiet. I wonder if the noise was when it was "installing" something.

 

(it is also displayed in 720 - when it states 1080 but off topic)

 

OP I guess we are going to have to get use to some clatter / bang / boom ....... if it falls apart then we should worry I guess.
