I'm an iBook 800/combo user and my iTunes seems to go really slow for a modern machine. I'm not sure if its iTunes, the drive because its in a laptop, or something else i'm not doing. I encode at 160 and use the CDDB feature to name the tracks. The fastest my iTunes ever imports is 5.__ x and thats good sometimes it goes as low as 1.5x and that seems ridiculou.s Anyone have any tips or a similar situation. According to apple.com its 16x,8x,24x which seems a little slow but 5._ x of DAE seems ridiculous.
