mac won't read cd

i tried to download program from web but now when i hot record on the program it doesn’t record my tapes but what ever audio is happening in my apartment

Is this about Audacity? If so you can get it here: .

What does “hot record” mean?

What does that have to do with reading CD’s (the topic subject)?

If you want to record tapes, you’ll need to open Device Toolbar and set the third (input) box to the Mac line-in (or the USB Audio CODEC if you are using a USB tape player). If you don’t see the USB Audio CODEC please restart Audacity.

If you want to import CD’s into Audacity, use File > Import > Audio… then the CD tracks should be mounted as AIFF files (click the CD in the Devices list on the left in the file import dialogue).
