Hey all,
Every once in a while I will come across a cd that my macbook will have difficulty importing into iTunes. These cd's get stuck on one song, and iTunes will not import. I can hear my optical drive going and going, and trying to import, but nothing happens. When I force quit, the window says iTunes not responding. When I put the same cd into my emac it will import with no problem most of the time. This has happened to me with four cd's. As I post this, one of the cd's in which my macbook had difficulty, my emac is now having difficulty. To make a long story short (too late), should I be worried aabout my optical drive on my macbook? I thiink I just answered my question, by observing my emac having difficulties as well. It looks like it might be the cd's, and not the drive.

The cd's are clean, but as I stated somtimes it will work in my emac drive, but not in my macbook drive. Some of the newer cd's have a bunch of art on the cd itself, causing the disk to be a bit thicker. Could this have anything to do with it? I know it sounds crazy, but I wonder.
