I have Sony CD-Rs and have never had issues until today. Made the list as I call it the "To Be Converted" list ... and it keeps spitting out the CD saying put in a blank CD. They are blank I made sure (brand new on the dang spindle). Is there something I'm doing wrong? And also if I were to get this to work, will it actually keep the names of the songs and such so when I re-import as MP3 it wont be a blank name that I have to just click and hope I remember the name while listening?

Any help is most appreciated Oh I am running a 27" iMac (I believe the specs are on the side under my name)
Wouldn't it be much easier to upgrade the songs from the iTunes store? Not only does this replace the DRM'd ones with DRM-free ones, but they are 2x better quality (256kbps AAC instead of 128kbps AAC) and it makes a BIG difference (and you can convert them to MP3s without hassle as well!). Costs 30 per song.

OTOH, if the discs are being spit out IMMEDIATELY, I don't think the song files are at fault here, I think your drive is either "being finicky" or the discs you've bought are too low-quality to be properly read by the laser, which then rejects them thinking there's no real blank disc there. I once had a machine that could NOT accept Memorex discs AT ALL, but loved Verbatim ...
