I have a CD that plays well in CD players , so it's not scratched. But, when I load it into the iBook it spins around for a while at what sounds like varying speeds and then spits out. This has happened about 8 times now. However once, on maybe the sixth attempt, the disk appeared on the desktop with a QT icon. So I opened it and saw that the tracks are AIFF format (aren't CDs usually WAV?) . Then iTunes opened and the CD information was correctly found from Gracenote. Quicktime also attempted to play the CD this time. So I tried to Import and got about two minutes into track 1 before it gave up. Now we're back to not reading and spitting out the CD. Any Ideas?
