Here is a tip from BitPerfect user Jim Brower:  “When ripping CDs, do not auto rip and eject, which lets iTunes determine the ripping order.  Instead, use show CD, which allows you to view the ripping order.  Where you see the track numbers begin, there is an arrow.  You can click the arrow until it points up.  This organizes the track order in the correct sequence from 1 to the end of the album.  The first track will be on top and the normal linear sequence will be from top to bottom.  This only has to be done once, iTunes will remember this setting.  I have rerecorded about 50 live CDs with no gaps using this method.

Thank you, Jim!
