OMG PLease SOMEONE help me find the right MP3 player!!!

by Travers77 / August 23, 2005 1:42 PM PDT

OK, I am a classic rock/ progressive rock FIEND.

I need a player that plays MP3s, i dont need all this other junk like videos and recordings...I just need to be able to hold my library of about 7,000 songs and be able to run around and listen to it all.

MAJOR PROBLEM: Ipods do not blend songs together. Remember those vinyl records, like Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon, where every songs melds together in perfection like it is all one big song??? Notice how itunes puts a gap between every song, no matter what?? I CANNOT HAVE THIS

I need an ipod that blends every song that is supposed to be blended, and seperates the ones that arent, LIKE A CD IN A CD PLAYER!!

I have been going crazy looking for THE RIGHT MP3 player, so PLEASSEEE help me thank you so much!!!

iAudio X5 will do the trick

The X5 software (JetAudio) has a provision to treat separate songs as one single file. That should solve your problem. It is a button that can be checked or unchecked.

Gapless is what you need

Gapless playback is where two songs intertwine each other and play seamlessly without the need to combine an album into one file. Many players do it, of which I forget the names and model numbers to

IPODs do merge song's together...

You have to do it through iTunes, but it can be done. I am not at home where I have iTunes, but if you scroll through the tabs at the top you should find something that says, "merge songs" or something like that.
