What with all this torrent and Flac malarkey that's about these days, I recently decided to hop on the bandwagon and have downloaded a whole host of concerts.

Obviously I don't want my meagre hard-drive to be 90% full of Queen concerts that I'll probably only ever listen to once in my life, so my CD burner's seen quite a bit of action.

But here's where my problem begins. When I burn these Flac concerts on to disc using Nero 6.3 I get pauses between the tracks, which is obviously fucking irritating when listening to a live concert. Despite using 'Disc-at-once' and checking the option for 'No pauses between tracks', and even manually removing the 2-second pause at the start of each track in the tracklist(which I don't see why I should have to do) I still get these gaps.

Am I being thick, and in need of enlightening by one of you more experienced Nero/Flac users, or is there simply no way around this?

Oh yeah, I suspect there is a way that involves converting the flac files to WAV files, and then doing something, but if at all possible I'd like to avoid having to do that, as I'm lazy and the fact that Nero burns straight from Flac is a nice happy fact that I like.

Any help gratefully received, and will possibly be rewarded in the next life.

Unfortunatly, I have no idea what to do about the FLAC issue, the only time I burn flac is just as a backup storage, not to listen to later, if I want to make a CD where it will be seamless I convert them to wav, I use DBPowerAmp for that.. and once they are in the wav format I burn them and remove the 2 second pause from all but the first track..

Cheers for the help guys (and the hugs Alex - truly, I'm touched), but I think the time's probably come for me to convert to WAV before burning.

With FlacFrontend it only takes minutes to decompress FLAC to wav and you can burn a normal audio CD. Try it, it could not be more easy.

And like HeM said, 'make sure you use disc at once', not track at once.

Well I've now used Flac Frontend (I came across the FAQ on here explaining how to use it. Nice one Barb. I never knew that existed!) to decompress to WAV before burning from the WAV files, and I still get the same results.

Ogre, I have been using Disc-At-Once, as I said, but my problem remains.

Any more suggestions?

Again, thanks for the suggestion Alex, but in my first post I did say I already do that.

I've gotta small theory to try out when I got home that hopefully will solve my problem. There's a chance I've just been being a complete knob all this time.
