    iTunes issue copying files
    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 ď01 Brown Sugar.mp3Ē canít be replaced because itís invisible."
    It doesn't happen with all imported CD's.-, so is it the CD, or a setting in iTunes?
    Any suggestions

    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
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    I also had this problem before, until I hit the show in finder. I realized that was the solution. hahaha
