Not sure what the right forum for this is; mods, feel free to move it to a better place if there is one. I have a basic music cd, that I have imported before in mp3 format. Only now I want it in Apple Lossless, so I am doing it over. However, iTunes will not read some of the tracks. It imports all of them, but the ones it would not read are all less than 20 kb in size. Attempting to copy off the disk results in a Finder I/O error, and Finder hanging and having to be force relaunched from terminal (relaunch is no longer available if I right click the finder icon) Now for the weird part. Each track that wouldn't read in iTunes crashes Finder if I try to open them in quicklook. Now for the even weirder part. EACH and EVERY track plays perfectly in Quicktime 7. Want something still weirder? iTunes will play the files it previously wouldn't recognize after I play them in Quicktime, yet the problem reappears if I attempt to import. I am totally at sea as to what the heck is going on here. Obviously, the cd and the optical drive are fine since Quicktime will play the files without a hiccup. I ran onyx to do a system wide cleanup (dramatically reduced my boot time!). Still no go. Any insight into this will be much appreciated! I'm totally baffled.
