ok,i found another program that will do the gapless job easily…and it’s free. should have thought of it sooner, but i have not used it for a looooong time. it’s burnatonce. get it @ http://www.burnatonce.com/. install it. start it. go to settings/device settings. under Write Settings choose the drive you will be using to burn the CD then set the options as in the screenshot below
now go to settings/options. in general you want the below settings if you have aspi installed. if no aspi is installed on your system then keep spti checked
and in audio mastering you want
now go to mastering/audio cd/add files. choose your audio files and add them to the playlist.
now you can right click on a title, choose track properties, and set any preferences you like, but for now DON’T change a thing.
now click on compile. insert a blank CD into your burner [if you haven’t already] and click on Write.
