I did try to make a DVD from various live/concert CDâ€™s and a few studio CDâ€™s I deliberately chose some of the CDâ€™s to be live/concert CDâ€™s, to make it easier to determine if there were gaps between the tracks. The DVD plays just fine in my standalone player, no gaps, no noises or other disturbances.
What source-files do you use to make a DVD? Are you using mp3 files? If you are, I believe thatâ€™s why your getting noises/gaps/cuts. I used strictly wav files to make the DVD.
About your navigation problems on your PC: well, I never use this type of music DVD on my pc, but I just checked it out with Powerdvd and it seems to work ok.
