then: , insert the audio CD/folder into drive, wait untill the table of contents is read and the track listing is displayed in EAC's window. Then go up the top, to Action --> Check gaps (or something like that). Once the gaps are read (or the time each gap is), go to Action --> Leave out gaps. Then continue extracting to .wav or .mp3 or your preferred format. Each audio file will then be without the gaps, and on MP3 players, the next song will play instantly.
