Thanks for your permanent interest in my problem. I believe I have always installed the Vista service packs and updates. WHat do you mean with "the settings on my Windows font" ??
However...... Don't blame my ECM9 too much!! I must admit the I am working with this ECM9 since some years and already burned hundreds of cd's and dvd's with succes! Only the gaps are sometimes a problem, but not always. e.g when I burn a number of tracks which follow each other on the original cd, there is automatically a gap between ; in other occasions some songs end with a short silence giving the effect of a gap. Of course, finding a definite solution would be better...!
