I recently compiled some of my music (ie music created by me) for burning onto an audio CD.
Now, my CD-burner supports the disc-at-once recording mode for burning CDs, and it also supports custom pause lengths between tracks.
So I burnt some CDs of my music, and I discovered a lot later that on regular CD players, the CD would not skip past track 1. It could continue playing the next tracks on its own, but as soon as you skipped to a track other than track 1 it would hang and/or eject the CD. I didn't realise the problem because the CD would play fine on my computer's CD-rom drive.
So I fiddled around a lot, and I found that the only way to fix things is to make the gaps between tracks all at least 2 seconds long.
Why is this? I've listened to Audio CDs with no gaps between the tracks before. They played fine on all players.
Keep in mind that YES, I was using disc-at-once so I thought that meant that I could adjust the gap between tracks to zero?
