Please be gentle - this is my first thread! biggrin.gif

As I understand it, itunes does not play m4a, m4p or lossless files without a small gap between tracks. However, if I burn these tracks to an audio CD, will it be gapless or not (obviously assuming I don't add a 2 second gap between tracks)?

I can't speak for iTunes since I haven't burned CDs with it, but:

AAC files encoded with iTunes will not decode gaplessly.

ALAC should decode gaplessly unless the decoder is doing something very, very strange (you'd have to try pretty hard to insert a gap when decoding lossless to a wave file).

iTunes has a gap size option in the burning preferences.
