    Everytime I try to use Itunes to burn a cd it checks the playlist, etc then when it starts writing the first track it freezes everytime. I end up having to restart to get the cd to eject cause I can't even cancel the burn, if I don't restart it will just try to burn forever (you can hear the disc spinning).

    edit: i've tried more than one kind of blank cd
