Adjusting pause between tracks?

I wonder if anybody knows: Is it possible to adjust the pause between tracks when playing music on the iPod Shuffle? On the ordinary iPod's, it is possible to set the tracks to cross fade, but this feature doesn't seem to be available on the Shuffle?

Exactly, there is no "crossfade" or "gapless" playback available on ANY iPod model.

If you want to join the tracks you could join all the files as one when ripping through iTunes. If you want longer pauses then I fear another ripping software solution needs to be implemented.

You have to make changes to the files in iTunes.

Use get info and go into options to adjust the stop time.

I have found that increased gaps aren't any fault of the gap between two songs caused by the iPod, but from 2-5 seconds of silence at the end of the track. this can be purged by tweaking the stop time in the options tab of get info if such extra seconds exisit. You can not, however get read of the millisecond gaps inherit between digital musical files.

OK, my parents were wrong, I'm not that smart: how do I "join" tracks? That would really cure my chopped up classical pieces.

Yo I had the same problem but I'v just solved it, I needed a hip-hop mix tape without spaces in my shuffle, so what I did was

Burnt the mix onto a cd,

Then opened the cd in iTunes

Goto "edit" next to "file" in the top left, and click select all

Then goto "advanced" next to "help" and select "join CD tracks"

Then import it iTunes, then bang it on you ipod

The only thing is you don't have any track marks, but I personally don't need that sheeit anyway for mix.

ipodge, you're smarter than I am. I figured it out as well, sort of: after I criticize all these drones asking questions that are available on Apple's site, I droneASSED myself to Apple, found the answer, and, BINGO. Plus, a bonus: instead of 17+ hours, now get nearly 20 hours of music loaded, plus, the fast foward is FAST.
