Hi thanks for your response.
It's all over the place... all the cd's are original in good to excellent condition; new to years old. I've tried importing while itunes is running and without. My import rate is about 50% and driving me nuts, especially when I know I've imported it in the past... scheesch!!!
I'll keep trying, I wonder if it has anything to do the the cd tracks pgm that opens whenever you inset the cd...
If I put in a CD when iTunes is running iTunes will get track information, but if I don't have iTunes running the CD just appears as a generic audio CD. I don't know anything about any program unless its is something introduced in a later system version than I use.
It really sounds like a problem with the CDs or the drive which is strange since you say this works with DVDs which tend to be more difficult to read. Try using a program such as Max to import the CDs just to rule out it being itunes.
Thanks for the reference to MAX... looks like I'll have to use it. I'm writing from my wife's laptop while importing one of the cd's I tried importing 5 times last night on my imac. It imported on the first try as it should. Opening Gracenotes was no biggie so I'm guessing both hardware and software crap is going on. It makes me wonder about the build quality going on but I'll hold my judgement until I talk to someone at the genius bar.
Still it bugs me... my imac is barely a year old.
