    I'm trying to import a CD to iTunes and whenever I stick it in my Macbook it revs up 3 times then spits it out. It's part of a 2 CD set, and the first one imported fine.

    do other cds have problems? if not I would guess that your CD is bad.

    Slot-loading drives can be picky about discs, even if they aren't visibly damaged. I'd say about 2% of my discs wouldn't work when I ripped my CD collection.

    I used an older iBook with a tray loading drive and it worked fine. Might have to track down another computer and give that a try. If it happens on a lot of discs, you might want to check with Apple to see if perhaps the drive is defective.

    This CD is brand new. I literally just opened the package.

    Maybe the disc is not compatible with the system. This occasionally happens to me (the spitting out of disc) when I watch DVDs on my MBP.

    Check to make sure the disc isnt Windows only or some odd format such as HDDVD or Blu Ray

    It's an audio CD. Like I said, it's a set of 2 and the other one worked.

    Refer to the first and second quotes above.

    Try it in a different drive, then copy the files manually over to your mac.
