Topic: Computer musings
I did some upgrades to my computer today, including a new data hard drive (the ones with my ripped-from-legally-purchased-cds- hard drive died), and that went ok. Next, I opened iTunes to start re-ripping aforementioned legally purchased cd's, and I got a message to update. No problem.
Every time I tried to rip a cd, I would get a disk access error message. If I clicked ok, it would go away and leave me alone, and let me rip the mp3s properly. So, several hours later, I had just about 10 cd's ripped. Well, I was distracted, I'd bought the 10th anniversary Xena collection and was watching that on my little DVD player while doing all this.
Then, I decided to burn an MP3 disk to play in my truck. Problem. It wouldn't recognize the cd in the drive. I then thought to myself, "Self, when has this happened before?" And self answered, "When you needed a firmware upgrade for your dvd/cd burner. Silly."
So, I googled my brand/model of burner, found the firmware upgrade, and went about the business of updating it. This time, iTunes happily burned my cd of mp3s without a hitch.
