Watch for a filename length issue in iTunes
Authored by: huzzam on Feb 10, '05 05:26:46PM

So why can't iTunes just start reading the next file ten seconds (say) before the end of the current one, and thereby have the data ready? Even slow notebook hard drives are much faster than the data rate of mp3 music, so they are fully capable of keeping up with this.

Watch for a filename length issue in iTunes

I do use iTunes to listen to continuous music, saved in separate tracks. There's no gap at all if you use crossfade (set to 0). BUT... My music is encoded using Apple Lossless. If you use a lossy format, then the very end of a track and the very beginning of nex track won't match anymore, which causes the gap. That's not iTunes fault at all. In fact, if you burn an audio CD from theses tracks using e.g. Toast, it will also hear gaps.
