How do I turn off the pause between CD tracks?


I use Winamp almost each day at work, most of the time playing CDs. There is one thing that annoys me, and I can't find out how to get rid of the problem:

There is a pause of about 1 second after one track ist finished and the next one should start. For most albums, this isn't a problem, but there are some where there should not be a pause. For example, I'm listening to "Tubular Bells" right now, which is essentially one big piece, only technically divided into 17 tracks to facilitate jumping forward and backward.

Sometimes I get the impression that winamp reads the whole track file into its memory before playing it, so the CD drive stops spinning during playing of the track. So, when the next track should begin, the CD drive first has to restart ist motor for winamp to read the track. Maybe that is the root of the problem.

Any ideas on how to fix this?
