I was away for a bit and when I returned I noticed a strange sound from my iMac. For some reason the hard drive was ticking furiously. Since I didn't use the computer I checked Activity Monitor. For some reason iTunes had 40-50% CPU and WindowServer used around 30%. Sure iTunes was running, but no song was playing.

Checking Hard Drive Activity I could see HDD was constantly reading approx 2,3 MB/s. Reading/second in was steadily at 400, and data read was 3,11 GB and climbing rapidly.

Has anyone else this problem? Has this something to do with the new iTunes 10.6.1 or Mac OS X 10.7.4 or a combination? What is wrong, and what can I do about it??

This has continued for a couple of days and restarts. No change.

Thanks! Joachim
