Hi there,

When i import a CD using itunes i can't do anything else with my computer. The whole system slows to a crawl. I have opened the task manager and under the performance tab my 'CPU Usage shows between 95 - 100 %

Is this normal?

Many Thanks

No not really......

check here

Go to Device Manager by pressing
Windows logo key + Pause Break key
and in the new window Hardware tab and Device Manager button.

In the list open the small + sign beside IDE controllers double click on the Secondary IDE
and then in the new window click on the Advanced Settings
and check that the Transfer Mode is DMA if available and Not PIO and that the current mode is DMA.
Aslo Check the Primary IDE
