Dear Mac users, I have recently bought a Mac Mini, and it is the first one without an optical disc. At first, I thought this was a good move, since the Apple presentations made it seem as if remote disc was a complete substitute for an optical disc drive. However, I now seem to realise that I cannot perform one very basic task - I cannot import CDs (i.e. rip mp3) to iTunes. I have searched on the internet and this forum and seem to find very little information on this. Most topics were from 2008 when remote disc and Mac Air came out. Therefore, I wish to confirm if the following are still true. 1. It is not possible to use remote disc to import/rip an Audio CD in iTunes. How about other software such as Songbird? 2. It is not possible to burn to CD/DVD using any software (such as Roxio Toast). 3. The Superdrive still has a poor cord design that breaks easily. Thank you in advance for your advice.
