How to burn a CD in iTunes

Your article on how to burn with iTunes was great and had no problems burning with it after reading it. The problem I encountered was getting a slight gap between songs. Not a 2 second or even 1 second gap, but like a little glitch between tracks. I have my files saved at 128kbps in AAC.
I thought at first it just maybe iTunes that has the tiniest of gaps between tracks, but when I burn the tracks under Nero, my other burning sofware, there is the smallest of glitches between tracks as well. I have burned other CDs using Nero and all the tracks seem to flow as it were one big track, but not when importing songs from iTunes.
Also when I play my iPod there is the smallest little gaps between songs. Is there anyway to get rid of this as well? I listen to a lot of live shows so when there are gaps it gets really annoying.
Just a note: I have imported all of my songs onto my iPod using iTunes. Is there something about iTunes that has a problem flowing tracks seemlessly together?And if so is Apple in the works to fix it? Is it just AAC that does this? A certain AAC speed? Am I doing something wrong? Sorry for all the questions just want to be able to fix it.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

I’m in the Army currently serving in Kosovo. I work in the TOC (tactical operations center) I HAD a 2gen 20 gb and finally received my 3gen 40gb AND I LOVE IT. The IPOD is one of the things keeping me going, I’m constantly answering questions from other soldiers and local nationals here asking me what it is and where to get one. I’ll try to get pictures up soon.

How to import CD tracks to iTunes

Sometimes when loading a CD into the drive iTunes won’t recognise the tracks - even if I hit “Get Info” - what can I do to solve this

How to fill a 5Gb iPod

I’ve unchecked lots (and I mean LOTS) of my music, but when i try to sync ALL the songs show up on the list and iTunes tells me there is not room on my tiny 5 GB iPod for everything.  What am I doing wrong here - aside from trying to do anything with a PC (be gentle!)

How to burn a CD in iTunes

If only it were that simple.  A huge number of Windows users have never been able to burn a cd with iTunes.  And Apple has yet to address the issue.

Check out this thread in the Apple discussion forums for more info.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

To expand on my last message…. I was able to get my recent songs list to work by changing the “Limit to…selected by” section from “most recently added” to “random”.  Don’t know why it worked, but it did!

A look at the iPod mini

Alex Heaton, thank you for your point of view, although it does outline your own primitiveness and insecurities it was much appreciated to read another point of view on the Mini iPod.

However, if you calmed down and actually read my post you should have picked up that I was not being insulting at all but merely stating a slight confusion, and only wanted to be set straight in a dignified fashion (which an individual managed to do, thank you Atomic Bomb also various other people) and on that point I admit I was wrong to say that “apple are making a huge marketing mistake” I had nt realised who they were marketing to in the first place.

Anyway, it was my BELIEF that it would make a much more effiecient purchase if one was to obtain the 15GB iPod as opose to the new Mini iPod, and also that the 15GB, 20GB and 40GB iPods are better looking.  But there is a fine line between belief and opinion and it is “closed-mindedness that you have to attack [my] believes”

TAPs and Obsolete iPods

I hate CompUSA in Cleveland Ohio. I work for a bussiness that had warranties with them, and the service was non-existant when we needed it. A store filled with low-life scum that sell you an on-site service plan but don’t mention that it is exceeded by the manuf. warranty and so does nothing. Had another item that took them 3 YEARS to get me a new monitor.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes

Is there a way to transfer a smart playlist to the Ipod that plays the 25 most recent songs added to the Itunes library?  I’ve been able to create it in Itunes, but once I sync it up to the Ipod, the list goes blank.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

First Looks: iTrip, iPod Armor & FlipStand

I have recently purchased the iPod Armor and I have to say that I am very happy with it as a protective case.  As mentioned in the article this case is a little bulky and not that easy to work with but does an excellent job keeping your iPod safe.
I wouldn’t recomend it for exercising but rather for someone who keeps their iPod in a bag or place that it could be banged around or dropped.
You’ll probably want another, more functional kind of case to compliment this one.

A look at the iPod mini

I predict the mini will drop to $200 very shortly… has the Creative Muvo2 4GB Mp3 player for only $198.82.

Amazon has Creative Muvo2 4GB Mp3 player for $199.99.

How to create smart playlists in iTunes


Thanks for your comments!  No need to wait, though.  Go download iTunes 4.2 from, and begin playing *now*.  No iPod required!  :D

The iPod mini Reaction Roundup

It’s a fabulous-looking gadget! AND it comes in pink! I must say I would have bought one as the mini size seems more convenient for gym use, rather than the 4th gen iPod. My 20GB one is a bit too heavy and bulky to for that intended purpose. However, for only a 4GB capacity. . . $249 is a bit steep. I want to get one, specifically for gym use but it has to be priced less than $200. I guess that’s just about the right price to trigger purchase intent, for most people, into actual purchase. I would think there would be a considerable number of existing iPod owners who would be interested in buying a mini, in addition to their big iPods. . . but that would really depend on the final selling price.

A look at the iPod mini

Oops, sorry bout that double post guys.

slight warning here, if your thinking of getting a mate to ship you an ipod, youll have to declare it and pay some stupid amount of tax. and if you dont, and they find it which they probably will, then theyll confiscate it. Same goes for if theyr comeing through the airport, the only possible way i can see of getting round that one, is if they take it out the box and flat pack the box and say that its their own player.

A look at the iPod mini

GearHead and especially Chococat STFU!!

Like so many have said, dont like it dont buy it!

and chococat, stop trying to pretend your clever by doing a little bit of maths. Shut UP!

If your really dumb enough to think that all the ipod is, is a hard drive, then ok. however you fail to realise that youve still got the SAME capacity, battery, processor, Screen, chipboards etc.etc., not to mention the fact that they’re all smaller, and so are likely to cost more.
Seriously, stop trying to be big, and LOOK AT OTHER PEOPLES POINT OF VIEW!!!
its no use saying that the ipod minis are crap and no-one wants them compared to the 3rd gen ones, when sooooooo many people are buying them!!

At the end of the day, either come on and discuss why you dont think theyr that good, NICELY, not like “I fail to see the logic behind most of these posts… ” DON’T insult people, unless of course you cant get past your little world of insecurity and closed-mindedness that you have to attack people believes.

on a final note chococat- “Apple are making a huge marketing mistake.” 
HAHAHA - retard
