Go to preferences....playback.....crossfade songs.

I have the slider at 1 second. For some reason I can't get the songs to crossfade any faster then about 5 seconds, no matter where I put the slider.

It used to work fine but for some reason I cannot shorten the crossfade time from one song to the next.

I deselected the crossfade box and then selected it again but that didn't work.

I'll bet someone knows how to correct this.

    What happens if you set it to the 12 second maximum - does it take effect? If it does, reduce it again and see if it works.

    Otherwise you might try deleting your iTunes Preferences to see if that helps.

    I tried setting the slider to 12 seconds and that did not fix it. This is a recent situation as the crossfade worked as it is supposed to in the past.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "deleting iTunes Preferences".

    I'm not sure what you mean by "deleting iTunes Preferences"

    If you look in your user/Library/Preferences folder you will see a com.apple.iTunes.plist file - those are your main iTunes Preferences. Rather than delete it, remove it to the desktop (with iTunes not running) - then launch iTunes and see if crossfade is now fixed. If it is not, move the previous Preferences file back or you will have to reset them all again.
