    I was just wondering if any of you have this problem when backing up iTunes. When it ejects a disc and tells you to insert an empty disc... my machine keeps spitting out the new disc. It will eventually take it and continue backing up. Sometimes I end up having to feed it the same disc as much as twenty times. Do any of you have this problem and has anyone found a fix? Thanks in advance for your replies.

    I gave up on the iTunes disc backup method after one use. What I do is use a RAID 1 for my iTunes Library and I have a separate iTunes music archive drive. I update the archive every couple months assuming I add to my library. The RAID 1 gets me additional data security and the archive drive gives me the backup.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the information. That sounds like a great way to do it.
