Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2006 2:25 PM (in response to pinklime)I'm getting exactly the same problem. I have forked out over a £1,000 only to find that after installing iTunes, I try to burn a audio disc to it, and it always seems to cut out/crash the PC at the same point of the CD-usually around track seven! Usually meaning that I need to re-boot my computer & start all over. Please someone help me???
Here's my diagnostics:

If you have multiple drives on the same IDE or SCSI bus, these drives may interfere with each other.
Some computers need an update to the ATA or IDE bus driver, or Intel chipset. If iTunes has problems recognizing CDs or hanging or crashing while importing or burning CDs, check the support site for the manufacturer of your computer or motherboard.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 30, 2006 4:39 PM (in response to pinklime)I have the same problem, and have tried the same solutions. Uninstalling and re-installing iTunes has become a common pastime for anyone I know who uses the iPod. The odd thing is, I have been importing CDs and using them on my iPod for some time. Sound quality and portability have been a real joy. Then all of a sudden, nada. The only things different are that I added some memory and removed some CDs from my library. The problem is not my CD drive, as I can play CD's just fine using Windows Media Player 10. The problem may be with Quick Time, as it does not seem to recognize .cda files as music files when I try to play a CD. I hope someone finds a solution to this.

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 6, 2006 9:19 PM (in response to pinklime)I'm having the same problem as all of you. Anytime I try to import a cd, or even if I try to convert songs into itunes, it will crash my system. Right around track 7, sometimes before sometimes after. I have had my ipod for almost four months and I really can't even use it. I don't have a duel core proc. either.PC, Windows XP Pro
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 7, 2006 1:28 AM (in response to pinklime)I'm now having similar I think that the latest version of itunes has changed the CD drivers, and i don't know how to change them back. I uninstalled and reinstalled Itunes back to the version that was on the CD software that came with my new Ipod, but i ihink the Cd drivers are still the same.
Anyone know how to change the driversWindows XP

It's been too long. I don't remember exactly what was your problem. What exactly happened when you tried to import CDs?Other OS
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 24, 2006 11:27 AM (in response to toonz)Whenever I tried to import or play a CD using iTunes, it would stall after about 6 seconds, locking up my system. I would have to disable all power to the system in order to reboot. I experienced no problem using Windows Media player or RealPlayer, just iTunes. Neither Up-dating my drivers nor re-installing iTunes helped. Going to the IBM website and downloading the firmware update for my CD-RW/DVD ROM drive solved the problem.
