    I have recently been having an issue when importing cd's into iTunes. It seems that a few of the tracks on each cd are being cut short and im not sure why. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I don't know if this helps at all but im using a PC for iTunes.

    how short? a couple seconds?

    You see record companies are getting irritated with people ripping music and sharing it. so what they do is they make these cd's so that the tracks overlap..

    |-----Track One-----|
    ================|-End of Track One Start of Track Two---|

    and so on.. so you get part of track 1 in track 2.. the reason you dont see this when listening normally is because the cd has no gaps between songs. so it plays continuously without interuption.

    it's cutting a minute or more off of songs. when i imported the killers cd it cut mr. bringhtside which is about 3:30 long to 10 seconds which shouldn't be happening.
