I'll keep it in mind, but supposedly this is what iTunes 
does....takes aiff and converts.  It used to work. It doesn't now.

I appreciate anyone's random thoughts....thank you!

BTW, the exact message when I try to copy the aiff file to desktop 
off the original CD is:

The finder cannot complete the operation because some data in Track 
4.aiff could not be read or written. Error code -36

Yet, track 1 and 2 can be copy/pasted.  On this CD there are 5 
tracks.  Track 3, 4, & 5 cannot be pasted.  That would lead one to 
think it's the recorder, BUT....the PC CD-player can play it, the 
recorder is also a player and it can play it.  But the MAC can't 
altho it used to could!
