I'm looking to buy an iPod or similar device. I've heard that if you rip a CD where the tracks flow together seamlessly without any gaps in-between (for example, a DJ mix CD) and play them back on these devices you get a brief (and annoying) gap between the individual songs. The only computer music player I've come across which is able to playback the mp3 files properly is Winamp, using the option to remove silence and setting the 'buffer-ahead on track change' function. This leads to smooth transitions between the tracks as though the album or mix was being played back properly on a CD player. I don't want to resort to what Apple offers as a solution which is to rip the whole CD as one track and would much prefer individual tracks of each song. Does anyone know if the new iPods or any other music players (such as the Creative Labs Zen) can play back songs without these gaps? Also, do any portable music players work with Winamp? Thanks for any help you can give.
