    well when i click on that then inspect on each of the items, they really arent using much cpu% ...
    i dont know much about all this im new to macs....
    the main problem im having now is that cds stay in the cd player....and when you try to use itunes alot of times it is just freezing up my computer and i have to reboot.

    im thinking of taking it back to the store as i have 3yrs warranty ..i dont know why its freezing and not ejecting cds.

You've most likely got something running that is competing with processing time for your player. i'd open up activity monitor and see what processes are highest on CPU % usage. the ones that look elective (not system-related), turn 'em off. turn off spotlight for a sec too. then test your import into itunes afterwards. is it still slow?

Imac 24 won't accept CDs or acknowledge that I am inserting one.

It sounds pretty clear from this problem description that your optical drive has gone bad and requires replacement. If you have posted under the correct model type, you have an "Early '09" model iMac and thus this repair should be covered under warranty.

2.4 GHz iMac Intel Core 2 Duo DVDRW/CD-RW Desktop has Cd stuck

Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
So, tell me is this a 17”, a 20” or a 24” iMac?
Have you ever opened or had this iMac opened by a technician ? If so, they may not have put it back together properly.
If not, this sounds like you might have to get in there and re-seat the optical drive.
are you handy and courageous or do you want to have someone else take care of it.
I should not be an expensive repair, no parts necessary, Apple service center should take care of this for about $150
Otherwise, take a look at this and maybe try it yourself:
Now I know, it's a Korean website, in Korean, but the list on the right hand side, has the take apart information you need.
Good luck
