How to rip a music CD in iTunes.
Created by: Ruth Metzel ‘10
1. Launch iTunes. Insert an audio CD into the computer’s CD/DVD drive. Use the eject key seen here on the Mac.
2. By default, iTunes will try to identify the CD you’ve inserted and log on to the internet to download the CD’s track informa- tion. The CD appears in iTunes’ Source list under the Devices heading (see Riverdance CD in Figure below) and the track info appears in the Song list on the right.
3.iTunes then brings up a dialog box asking whether you’d like to import the tracks from the album into the iTunes library; click Yes and it does, or No and it doesn’t.
You can change this behavior in the Importing tab under the Advanced iTunes Preferences window (iTunes > Preferences > General). Under the “When you insert a CD” section you can direct iTunes with different options: Show CD, Begin playing, Ask to import CD, Import it, or Import CD and eject.
