He really really thought–and hoped–that the problem was user ignorance and not his expensive tools. After all, he’d been bragging to his wife that, though he’d never used the MacPro to burn a CD, with Apple, it just works.
Well, it just doesn’t. Today, I made four coasters.
I find I’m not the only one to discover with no small disappointment that there is no built-in way (as there was not on the PC but hey–it was a PC after all) to make an exact copy of a CD without going through iTunes or a third party app like Roxio, Toast or Nero for PC.
I dislike iTunes so (at least the version that was around a couple of years ago) that if it hadn’t been for that non-intuitive program I probably would have gone to the Mac side way back.
So I’ve given up and gone whimpering back to RecordNow freeware built into the ThinkPad. This is not a common need but I was determined I could make it work. Nope, not without more downloading trial and error for OS-X supplements.
