How to join existing tracks in iTunes
Authored by: fracai on Dec 16, '05 06:21:05AM

It is a limitation of the MP3 format. The summary is that MP3s store music in sections and if a song doesn't completely fill out the last section you'll have added silence. But that doesn't mean Apple couldn't overcome the issue with iTunes and the iPod by dropping silence from the end of tracks. I don't mean all silence, some songs have silence at the end as part of the recording. Dropping all silence in the last frame of the MP3 should suffice.

I believe one of the Rio MP3 players includes this feature.
