iTunes public service announcement

Apple Insider has reported that since upgrading to iTunes 7.6.1, CD imports sometimes result in the last 6 seconds of the final track getting cut short.

The glitch primarily affects newer, faster drives, because (and sorry for getting a bit technical here) the little men collecting the data are so exhausted that they fall over and drop some of the bits and bytes.

Now, I know that CDs are just SO 20th Century, but for those of you who still employ the format, it might be worth checking the last track of any you've ripped to iTunes recently.

If you have been affected, and can't wait for the update, some users have found that importing the final track to AIFF format sorts the problem.
