    I'm having a problem with my ibook and some audio cds. Every time I insert a CD and itunes pops up, it doesn't recognize the information on the cd. It's not like it's a copy either; it's an original CD. Anyone else having this problem?

    are you connected to the internet when inserting the cd? the track names arent usually stored on the actual cd--it queries the grace note cd database (online) to find track info and such.

    Yeah, I am online, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference. Also, the grace notes thing takes longer to download/scan. I thought it might be the one cd that didn't have the track info, but the same thing happens with others.

    Never had that problem. Going to a windows machine way of thinking for a moment. ...
    Have you tried reinstalling iTunes? I don't know if you can do that on macs since I'm a fairly new user, but that always seems to do the trick for windows machines.

    In the iTunes preferences, under the General tab, are you set to simply Show Songs upon inserting a CD or does it start importing straight away (that'll be a bit slower).

    Also, under the Importing tab, is Use Error Correction When Reading Audio CDs ticked because once again, this'll slow things down.

    If you go for the reinstalling iTunes option (not recommended), make sure you delete the preferences because otherwise it's unnecessary. In fact, simply deleting the iTunes preferences is effectively reinstalling the app on OSX (to an extent).
