Why don't the tracks have the smooth transisition as they do on cd when playing MP3 of WMA files

When a VD is made, all for the tracks are written as a single stream. A directory sector on the CD defines where the tracks start and stop. When played on a CD player, it will start at the beginning of the track specified and continue to the end, unless repeat or random play is selected. When the CD is ripped to Audio files, each file contains the music for a single track. Now comes the issue. MP3 players are given a list of files to play. When it comes to the end of the file, it stops playing, closes that file, opens the next file and starts plaing again. This causes a break to occur between tracks.

Run->cmd). Navigate to the location where the CD audio files are and then use copy to append the files into a single file.

copy /y/b "file1"+"file2"[+…] filename.mp3
