Hey all,

Just a quick question......I am having trouble listening to my music CD's on my imac. The problem is that the system doesn't recognize them as audio CD's....just sees them as "foreign" and tries to intialize them......Damn!

I remember having this problem in the past, but for the life of me I cannot remember what I did to fix it. I beleive it was one of the extensions.

Any ideas or help from you guys would be greatly appreciated ;-)

Check that the "Audio CD Access" and "Foreign File Access" extensions are installed and enabled.

Also, if its a tray-loading iMac, clean the laser.
