Granted I am new to the Mac-But I was going to put a CD in to copy to iTunes,and it didnt ask to enter it,or show it anywhere. I cant even eject it..
All the other CD's I have been putting in worked fine,and there is data on this one in question

Newbie mistake,or something wrong?

Thanks

It does not show up on Finder on the Sidebar or in Disk Utility?
