What are the specs on your computer? What OS? What processor speed? What are the specs on your CD drive?

It shouldn't take more than a few minutes to import a CD.

Something is going seriously wrong for you. Even if the songs weren't digitally extracted, a 1-1 ratio should be the slowest import speed because it would just record in real time. So, the longest amount of time any CD would take in real time would be 70 minutes. Two+ hours is slower than real time.

Post all your specs and maybe we can help you figure it out.

Also, how many CDs have you tried? If you've only tried 1 so far, perhaps there is something wrong with that CD. Is it terribly scratched or anything. If so, maybe it's having trouble reading the CD.
