Why does iTunes stop playing my CD when I re-focus on the program? Win XP, iTunes 7

I have Autorun turned off. I feed my disc drive a lot of CDs, not all of which are DRM/malware-free, so I keep Autorun off. This means I have to put a CD into the drive, focus away from iTunes, and then focus back on it before it'll recognize the new album in the drive. This I am OK with.
However, if I am already playing a CD in iTunes while using another program, and if I move from that program back to iTunes, iTunes stops playing the CD and no longer even recognizes that a CD is in the drive. The CD disappears from the program. What's going on? How can I fix/prevent this phenomenon?
If it's worth mentioning, I think I'm 1 iTunes update behind. I've been putting it off because I'm scared the beast is gonna be even more of a resources hog on my already-struggling pc.
