If the mp3's are the same bit rate, have you tried doing a binary copy from
the dos command prompt?
When I do this, I usually rename the files 1 2 etc.
then all I have to do is go in to the command prompt and type
then, using my file names as an example, type
copy /b 1+2 file.mp3
Note: filename.mp3 is the mp3 file that will be created which will contain both mp3 files.
Again, make sure both files are of the same bit rate, otherwise the results will be horrible because the second file will either play faster or slower than the first, depending on its bit rate.
Hope this helps, and that my memory served me correctly as to the syntex of the copy command.
Hope, with a name like wavepad, one might be tempted to think that this program deals with wav files only. Does it also combine MP3 files?

Hello, I use wavepad, and one of its selling points is that it will do what a program like mp3 surgeon will do. The best part of it all is that it's free. There is a Masters Edition, but you do not have to upgrade, and the program is not just a trial basis. Anyway, this is just another solution, perhaps, or it is what I use. I hope this was of some use.

Hi, so where do you get MP3 surgeon?
Thanks for the tip about gold wave. I guess it's not as good an idea as I thought.

To combine mp3 files without reencoding you need a program like mp3 surgeon. The joined files need to be at the same bit and sampling rate. Using goldwave works but the files get reencoded which means losing quality.
