Hi,
After importing a CD into iTunes when I try to copy the mp3 files to a Folder on the desktop i get this pop-up message:
"The item 01 Brown Sugar.mp3 cant be replaced because its invisible."
It doesn't happen with all imported CD's.-, so is it the CD, or a setting in iTunes?
Any suggestions
QUOTE Thanks

Where are you copying them from? Sounds like you're trying to drag them straight from the CD. Is it always that exact message or is it "The item insert-track-name-here.mp3 can't be replaced etc?

The easiest way to get to the files:
- After the import has completed go to the recently added playlist - you'll see the tracks you just imported
- right click on one of the tracks and select 'Show in Finder', this will take you to the location of the actual files on the disk
- from here you can copy them to wherever you like
