I have a 30GB iPod v 1.3 Model MA002LL (I don’t know what generation that makes this).I always use the shuffle song feature when listening to music but there are some songs that I want to play one right after the other. For example:
We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions - Queen
This Beat Goes On/Switching to Glide - The Kings
You Never Give Me Your Money/Sun King/Mean Mr. Mustard/Polythene Pam/She Came in through the Bathroom Window – The Beatles (Side 2 of “Abbey Road”)
Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/End – The Beatles (Side 2 of “Abbey Road”)
Most of Dark Side of the Moon – Pink Floyd.
The problem is that choosing gapless doesn’t do me any good when I use shuffle. My only choice seems to be to turn off shuffle. Is there a way to link songs together so they will always be played one after the other?
Most of them I had ripped from CDs that I had borrowed (oh the shame. The RIAA will accuse me of stealing the music) but some I had bought from iTunes. Does that mean I have to burn them to a CD and rip them back in as joined tracks? What a crock.
There are plenty of shareware and freeware apps that can edit WAV and MP3 files, including cropping and sewing them. I’ve done a couple of “sew jobs” like you describe, to keep instrumental intros and whatnot with the song they go with on the album.
I think it’s a crock that I have bought or ripped songs into my PC and now have to burn them to a CD so I can rip them back into my PC just so I can have two (or more) songs play continuously. Apple should update their software to allow this functionality.
