Now I know that Wikipedia is not always the most reliable source of info, but having said that the wiki about gapless playback seems to indicate that it does indeed have something to do with the file type in so much as that file type will often determine if the firmware and gapless system employed within the player will be able to properly detect the gapless nature of the file. The wiki also goes on to explain that lossless files such as flac and WAV are basically immune to gapless issues because they are automatically gapless by nature.
Does anyone have any insight as to the issue I am having with my X3? Even accessing an album file via categotries does not produce gapless playback in albums that have tracks that blend together. I have never experienced this issue before and never realized how frustrating and annoying it can be. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know if the next firmware upgrade will address this issue directly?
