    When trying to import tunez from a CD, iTunes takes forever. Almost seems like it is not working. The little wave is doing its thing but not much else is happening. Last time I imported a CD - iTunes just sort of sat there and then suddenly something started happening. It took a while.

    I am trying to import a CD right now and its just sort of sitting there. I am to let it run but I am not sure if it will do anything.

    I am using a PC w/ XP sp3 and iTunes 8.

    Thanks.

    Whats the processor speed and how much ram do you have on the PC? When I had my HP, iTunes always ran slow, but it was because it was taking up almost 100% of my resources all the time (sub 2ghz chip and 512mb of ram).

    Now with my mac, iTunes runs and rips CDs a lot faster now.

    Next time you try ripping a CD, open up your task manager and see how much juice iTunes is using on your machine, you might find your answer there.

    I have a duo core 2 w/ 2 gb ram. Should be plenty powerful. The cdr/dvdr doesn't do anything and iTunes doesn't do much either.

    hmmm, have you gone into options and set everything to the max speed for ripping? I know, sounds dumb, but sometimes I forget to check the simple stuff too.

    iTunes for windows is pretty bad, but ripping CDs shouldn't be affected that much.

    does this happen with all discs?
