I've tried a few other resources to see if I can figure this out, hopefully someone hear can help.

I sometimes have large WAV files that need to be split into individual audio tracks. It is my understanding that these need to be split on sector boundaries to burn perfectly gapless CD's.

I've tried a couple of differerent methods for doing this. I use a program called CDWave to split the file. This program is designed to split on sector boundries. Then I take the WAV files and burn them DAO, making sure to remove the 2 second gaps that Nero wants to put in by default.

The other method I have tried is to just leave it as one huge WAV file, and use a CUE sheet to define the tracks.

Either way, I have had mixed results. Although I don't get pops in between the tracks, there is still a slight hesitation between some tracks.

Using a CUE sheet, the track marks did not come out the same on my CD player as what was in the CUE file.


Hmmmmm....

Maybe someone can suggest what I might be missing here. I hope so.

Thanks,

Brett

An example of my source audio would be an audio rip done from a music DVD. I end up with a WAV file that may be 1.2GB.

So, spilt it in half with CD Wav, and I have two 600MB WAV files. I maneged to burn a perfectly smooth gapless CD by using a CUE sheet. Thing is, the track indexes are not exactly the same on the burned CD as the CUE sheet.

For example, in the CUE sheet, track 2 might start at the 10:00 mark. On the actual CD, it might start at 10:01. This actually gets progressively worse as you move up to track 10 or 11.

If I play the WAV file in CDWave using the CUE sheet, everything is right where it's supposed to be.

Somewhere in the burn process, the track indexes are "adjusted". I've tried Nero, Fireburner, and EAC. Same thing.

WTF?
