    I'm going to be imports loads of CD's so to do so I want an automator action that will import the cd and then eject it then, upon insertion of the next CD it should repeat the process and keep on repeating till I say stop...

    The problem is that I don't know how to get automator to select a CD and import it because there's only a 'import audio files' action. Or is there an action to select finder items on a CD? also is there a repeat action in automator?

    I don't think you need an automator action. Just do the following:

    1) System Prefs-> CD's & DVD's -> When you insert a music CD: Open iTunes

    2) iTunes->Prefs->Advanced->Importing-> On CD Insert -> Import CD and Eject
