I have a MacBook Pro (bought this summer, the early 2008 model) with a strange problem.

When importing CDs using iTunes I experience very different import speeds, depending on which CD I import.

Just ten minutes ago I imported a CD and got speeds of around 18x-19x, which is impressive.

However, the next minute the speed only reaches about 6x-10x. I have even had CDs import at just 4x-5x. I can't find any pattern, and all the CDs look fine (little or no scratches etc.).

Any idea why this happens? Could it be a hardware semi-failure?

Is there a way to diagnose this problem?
