    Default Burning CDs with iTunes

    Is there any other software besides iTunes that will burn CDs of .m4a files? I don't know if it's just with the latest version of iTunes (9.0.1.8) or if it's always done it and I've just never burned the right tracks before, but right now when I try to burn two songs that should segue into each other seamlessly, it seems to be dropping a bit of a second in between them so that the beat transition sounds awkward. If I play the songs back to back in iTunes, they play correctly. I can't remember if I have an older version on my work laptop but I may copy a couple of tracks over to that if I do and see if I can even burn a CD on that one. But until I get a chance to try that, anyone have any insight?

    After you hit "Burn Disk" and the pop-up appears, make sure your "Gap Between Songs" setting is none.

    yep, I've got that. since it seems to be subtracting time, I even tried the 1 second gap just to see what would happen, but that put the gap there as it should.

    Hmm...are you 100% sure they're not still mp3's? I have never have this problem with iTunes. When I convert my mp3's to AAC (which is the the m4a format) it even removes that 20ms gap that mp3's have at the beginning and the end of the file. Other than that, I'm stumped.

    that's part of the problem - they're songs I bought from the iTunes store. If they were songs that I'd imported from a CD, I could just use the source CD and make the mix CD with another software, such as Roxio.

    After I check to see what version of iTunes I have on my work laptop, I might try to reburn "Intruder"/"(Oh) Pretty Woman" to a CD and see what happens there.
