    ripping my music Cd's via Windows media player runs just fine and fast.
    doing the same with itunes, my CD drive is slowing down and the speed is
    frustrating, it takes 30 minutes for one music CD....
    have all new versions of itunes and quick time...
    did not change any settings....
    tested the speed of the drive with roxy and it shows no problems...
    can anybody help or has and idea?

    Yes, I have an Idea: Rip your CD's with WMP.

    thanks for the funny solution. yes, I do it already now via WMP and
    afterwards transfer to iTunes. like WMP very much, but the question still
    remains, why is the ripping running fast and smooth in WMP but only with half
    the speed in iTunes. It just happenend out of the blue. Had no problems
    before with iTune speed.

  4. iTunes has an option to "Use error correction when reading Audio CDs". If
    this is turned on and your CDs are dirty or scratched then this will reduce
    the speed of importing.

    Note: All software will import the first track(s) on a disk slower than the
    later tracks because the bits on the outer part of a CD move past the head
    faster (the CD starts from the inside).
