Default Gaps between tracks

Is there anyway to get rid of the 1 second gaps between tracks?

On my old MP3 player you could do it by converting them all to a certain format.

I don't believe so. The P2 doesn't have gapless playback.

I'm guessing your old mp3 player was some form of sony that used their atrac3 codec? cuz that's what I used to have

My previous Samsung player, the YP-Z5 got gapless playback in a later firmware update. So there's still hope!

Yes, Gaps are inevitable. Even if you record with the --nogap command line in LAME they still end up pausing for a half second or so between tracks. Hopefully this will be fixed with a firmware update.

As an aside, why is it so ludicrous to think that gapless should be standard on EVERY mp3 player?

Agreed, gapless playback should be no rapper! Not to mention have been left out of the bluewave firmwares. Maybe in a while it will be released.

Side note, when first selecting the first song, the start up time should be significantly reduced.

It should not be a standard but they should all offer it.

It is no fun listening to Confessions on The Dance Floor with those gaps...

Why shouldn't it be a standard? I mean, CDs that are meant to have gaps between the tracks have encoded silence when the mp3 is ripped, so if the track is supposed to have silence, even with a gapless player, it will. If it's supposed to be gapless, then it will be too. So there is no good reason why any mp3 player shouldn't have gapless just plain built in.
