A strange thing is occurring in iTunes in that when I insert a cd into my laptop, the cd does not show in the menu on the left hand side just above ‘genius’ as it should. I checked in preferences and the settings are correct i.e. ‘show cd’, so I altered it and then back again and the cd appeared in the menu on the left as normal. But when I ejected the disc and tried again, it failed to appear once more. It is the same with any cd. Strangely though if I leave the disc in and close iTunes and then immediately open it again, the disc is showing. Once I have it on show I can import it ok and I can burn a disc as normal. I have tried ininstalling iTunes and reinstalling the software but the problem still remains. How odd is that?
