@Sparkie - Thanks
I forgot to respond to your solutions. I don't have Zune and I'm kinda hesitant to install another media player. But thank you for replying
BTW, I slept after posting (and deleting) my solution and... well, it starts "unpausing" again.
Just in case people are looking for a mild solution, here's what works for me.
1. Go to Tools Menu > Options > Privacy tab
2. Under "History" box, uncheck "Playlist" and "Pictures". If you want, you can just uncheck everything under that box (I don't visit Recent Items on WMP12 anyway so might as well disable them).
3. Clear your WMP12 history and cache by clicking the Clear Cache and Clear History buttons.
4. Close the dialog box by clicking OK.
When I first played 10 songs consecutively, there were no pauses at the end of each song. On the 11th, there's a bit of a pause (a split second, hardly noticeable unless you're listening carefully or you're playing too loudly). Or prolly because I was browsing the net but hey! Too much hassle if WMP12 can't handle multitasking.
Since I'm using a low-end system, to those who have good specs with this abominable "pause" phenomenon, please try it and let us know if this solutions works for you
