 1. Rip the whole CD into .wav files (i.e., no compression, no post
    processing, whatever). Use any decent ripper of your choice.

 2. Assuming all the .wav files are in the current directory (and are
    the only files, and are numbered so they sort correctly). For

      C:\MP3> dir *.mp3
      22-07-03 12:44 5,123,435 TRACK01.MP3
      22-07-03 12:44 6,131,467 TRACK02.MP3
      22-07-03 12:44 7,834,973 TRACK12.MP3

 3. Run lame (the latest version, 3.93):

      C:\MP3> lame -h -b 192 --nogap *.mp3

    Check the output that all files are processed, and in the correct

    If the files are not in the right order, you have to name them

      C:\MP3> lame -h -b 192 --nogap track01.mp3 track02.mp3 ... track12.mp3

    You should now have a series of files, TRACK01.MP3 and so on, that
    should play gapless on Rockbox.

 4. Add ID3 info to taste.

Happy hacking!
