Around 1am last night, I finished my mammoth task of transferring my CD collection to hard drive. I had done this once before, but due to HD limitations, I had to sacrifice sound quality. Well, with the ample HD of my new 1.4 PM, I decided to reinvent the wheel and re-record the collection at 190 KB or whatever it is. It took me a week to transefer the over 700 CDs involved. Most arduous was clicking the appropriate tracks (or rather, declinking the inappropriate ones). Risking a repetitive stress injury, I dutifully switched disks whenever my wife would let me "go play on the damn computer." I have a raw wound on my thumb from pulling and pushing discs into and out of the case logic books. Never again. Well, to get to the point, as I insert literally the final disc last night (Johnny Cash's "Murder") into the drive, the most ungodly sound is emmitted from my wonderful new computer. I high pitched grinding sound. I worried that I had destroyed something. I eject the disc. Luckily it ejects without a problem. I make sure it is set well in the cradle - no problem. I reinsert and the same noise. Nothing shows up in the iTunes window. I eject again and assum it is a problem with the disc. Worried that the computer has finally just given up at the finish line, I get another disc that I know is fine. As I remove the Cash disc, I notice that I never removed the previous disc. After never making such an idiotic error with the previous 6429 tracks, I screw up at the end. I am a moron. Just wanted to vent. I do not feel that I was given my due "props" at home for accomplishing this herculian task. (Although I'm sure many of you have recorded collections of similar or even larger sizes.) Sorry to waste your time.
