Not sure what you mean by a pause? How long is it? There is less than a second between songs on my pod, except when I'm manually skipping ahead and it has to load up the memory to get to the next track. Are you talking about crossfading between tracks? <br><br>I know in iTunes you can crossfade tracks by up to 12 seconds and then there is really no break at all between songs, but I guess there is no way to do that on the pod, yet. <br><br>
