Default Remove gap between musics

Hello,
My name is Carlos and I live in Portugal.
I have the following problem. I bought a Sony Walkman HWZ-E460 and when I try to synchronize musics (eg: live albuns) with Windows Media Player or Sony MediaGo I have gaps between musics. In an old Walkman I donīt have this problem.
How can I solve this problem?
Thank you.

The only way for a Sony to play gapless is if you rip the cd to .WAV. Otherwise a Sony Walkman is not gapless, and there's no way to make it play mp3's gapless.

I believe the large files are unpreventable. IIRC the file size for a .WAV file is about the same size as the original CD track.

Although it's likely to be impractical, one way to get gapless on a Walkman with MP3 files is to rip the entire CD as one MP3 file. I did it with Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon and it worked.

Don't forget Pink Floyd's "The Wall". I ripped that as a single file too.

I'm not a fan of Pink Floyd, but I'd heard so much about Dark Side Of The Moon over the years that I finally decided to buy it. I wanted to see what it was all about.

My understanding is that the album must be listened to without gaps to be heard properly and so I saw it as the best choice to test the rip-it-as-one-file to get gapless. However, one review I read of the album said that it was designed to be two parts with a gap between side one and side two. For a time I maintained two versions of the album, one that is one large MP3 file, and another with each song as a separate MP3 file.
