Q: A live concert CD is normally continuous without gaps between songs. However, when playing this music on the iPod, these songs have gaps in between. How can I eliminate the gaps in between the songs for live when playing from iPod songs?
A: Many people would like to see a gapless iPod. For now, there isn’t one, and the only workaround is to import the entire CD as a single track. When the CD displays in iTunes, select all the songs, then select Advanced > Join CD Tracks. This makes a single gapless file of the album. However, you’ll lose individual song names and other information.
