If I'm understanding the term gapless playback correctly, I find that it would only apply to a few song "pairs" that I listen to. (Like Alan Parsons Project: Sirus/Eye in the Sky, Jackson Browne: The Loadout/Stay.)
What I did is download an mp3 editor (audacity, available free at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/). I spliced the two songs together into a single mp3. (Took a little playing around to get the timing right, removing fractions of a second of time in the "gap" between them so it sounds right.) Once I get it right, export as a single mp3, give it a combined name, put it in the folder for the music album, move the old two songs for backup to another folder (in case I need to do it over), re-synchronize with the View (or just drag and drop, and delete the two mp3 files from the View).
Sounds good after it's accomplished. I actually like listening to it more after fixing it, instead of kind of dreading the gap as it's coming up.

I must admit, ripping an entire disk as one track is a pretty inconvenient gaplessless playback workaround. It's not like the View's fwd/rev speeds would make it a minor inconvenience.
