    This has only been happening recently. Currently I am on a 2.2Ghz MacBook, 4GB of RAM. iTunes has 16,455 songs all on my internal hard drive (90.58GB). I have over 60GB free hard drive space.

    When I go to play a song, I get the beach ball, then the song plays, the cursor changes back, then the time scrubber at the top moves to where it is in the song (usually about 15 seconds in). It does the same thing when I go to stop the song, either clicking Pause, or by hitting the Space Bar (taking around 5-10 seconds to stop the song).

    I have included an attachment of the CPU usage.. all the giant spikes is iTunes. Usually on the User CPU usage, it's around 65% when iTunes does this.

    Anyone have any ideas of why it's doing this?

    Now I have not been using Macs for long, I just bought my first Apple last week. But I would strongly suggest a reboot. If that does not help, then someone with more knowledge can gladly correct me.

    I've already rebooted, repaired permissions, etc. Thanks though.

    Have you tried reinstalling iTunes it may be corrupted.

    Or try resetting your folder location

    How would I go about resetting my folder location? I'm not understanding what that means or does.
