    Hey, just been making my music library in Itunes by ripping my CDs. The first few CDs had no problem at all but recently when I've been inserting the CD, it will mount but then will quickly & automatically dismount. I have to then eject and then re-insert for it to work.

    Has anyone else experienced a similar situation and does anyone have a fix for this?

    Heck at least that is only half as annoying as my iTunes. Since the Leopard install my iTunes plays 10 secs then stops playing. I can hit space bar and begin where it stopped but annoying when u can't listen to ur own music, I may hafto dig out a cd player if this persists. Anyone had either probs we r having?

    Auto-Dismount ripping CDs

    I have exactly the same issue. iTunes seems to see the CD briefly and then it dismounts. My current work around is to have Disk Utility open all the time and to MOUNT the Audio CD again after it dismounts.

    Brand new Leopard install on brand new iMac 24". 2,214 songs ripped so far, another ~3,000 to go, this is annoying! [Big mistake ripping them in .WMA format last time, sigh!]

    It didn't do this initially, I did add Parallels but the CD is disabled for VM's.

    Oddly it seemed to start gradually and now it's every single CD I insert. Not very binary!

    Permissions - Rachmaninov vs Schubert??

    Seems unlikely that permissions would affect why it will load one disc but not another when they are both audio CDs but just from different composers or artists . . . :(

    CD won't mount: disappears after clicking no to auto-import into itunes

    I have a similar problem. I insert a cd when itunes is open, it asks me if I'd li like to import it. When I click "No", the cd disappears from iTunes entirely and off of my desktop. If I eject the disk using the keyboard button, and then re-insert it, it seems to work ok again.

    I got the problem too

    Looks like someone at iTunes need to be fired. Their solution is just to buy from iTunes. FU apple! not gonna do it until you start selling lossless. Idiots!

    I have the same thing on my SR Macbook, but only if I click import a soon as the CD appears. If I wait a couple of seconds before importing it doesn't disappear and works OK.
