I just tried to import audio files off a CD, and iTunes froze solid about a third of the way through. I then tried to manually copy the aiff files, but the last two files wouldn't copy. Put the CD into my USB burner instead of the builtin CD-ROM, and could copy the second last, but still not the last track (OK, I didn't really like that track anyway - they were probably sour grapes ).
Then, of course, no obvious way to convert from 600-some MB of aiff files to 80-odd MB of mp3s, since iTunes will only convert if the files are on a CD to start with. Grrr. I suppose I could burn an extra audio CD, and rip the mp3s from that using iTunes, but then what do I do with the CD? Give it to someone - that would be letting iTunes 'anti-piracy' mechanisms force me to pirate music CDs...
