    Hi - first post on these forums and new to iTunes. Got my Nano today and currently in the process of loading all of my music onto it - question: Is there a way to get rid of the 'gaps' inbetween tracks? i.e. if you have a mixed album can you get it to sound the same on your iPod instead of having the two-second gap between songs? Sorry if this has been asked before, but as I said, I'm new!! Thanks a lot in advance for your help guys. :D

    Currently ( we have no idea why ) the iPod does not support "gapless" playback, but it should not take 2 seconds to transition either.

    Are you saying that you want your playlist to continue from one song to the next without a gap? I don't think it is possible.

    Wow, didn't realise that.....that's a shame. Any ideas if it is planned for any future releases of iTunes?

    Yes - for tracks like a mixed dance album where there would be no pause between the songs. Quite disappointed that this is not supported actually! :(

    Are you trying to mix two songs into one using iTunes? May I ask?

    I just couldn't appreciate the beauty of listening to continuos gap-less playbacks. :rolleyes:

    No not me personally, there are certain albums that move from one song to another with no gap, and the albums have been put together to sound good like that - for e.g. 50 Cent's first album uses no gaps and it sounds odd to hear a gap when listening on my iPod if that makes sense. :confused:
