I just bought an external CD-ROM drive, a Samsung SE-S084 which is Mac compatible. At first the Mac would not recognize the drive. Now it does (for some reason it suddenly started recognizing it.) But iTunes only starts to rip the disk, then stops. On one occasion, it got as far as starting to rip the first song, then stopped. On another occasion, it stopped just after I asked it to start ripping the disc and an error message said something to the effect of it could not get data from the disc. This sounds like more of a drive issue, than an iTunes issues. I did a Google search but could not find anything useful about the drive model and use with a Mac. Does anyone have any ideas?
