Simply insert the media to be copied, then choose "Copy a CD" in the "Copies" panel. Now choose "save as cue/bin image" in the "disc" menu.
You can find LiquidCD here:

You are confusing me for one. Insert your CD, start disk utility. Select the CD's name in the left panel list. Choose File>New>Disk Image from <disk name>.
Choose "read-only" for your audio CD and "DVD/CD master."
This image will make a CD that is read by all players. That's the SOP for bulk sharing CD's.
As to uploading an image to a web site for people to burn, maybe a compressed file would help with bandwidth and download time but I doubt it would work for PC's.
Just my best guess on the PC compatibility.

You are confusing me as well.
What do you think a PC-user could do with a .CDR-image in HFS+ format?
And what a Macuser should do with this file too?
I think anamorphis wanted to offer a format what can be used to burn it directly as Audio-CD;
PC-user could burn bin/cue-files for example with Nero directly as Audio-CDs.
For Macusers are also a lot of applications like Toast or maybe LiquidCD for burning this image as Audio-CD.
Sure, as Macuser you could copy the Audio-files from .CDR-image into iTunes or burn-apps, but thats not the smart way.Powermac G5 dual 2.0 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 13, 2008 2:02 PM (in response to Mellnight)Yes Nightmell! That's exactly it, and LiquidCD seems to do the job just fine. I tryed it a few minutes ago and now I have a perfect CD image to share with everyone (Mac or Pc).

Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2008 12:42 PM (in response to Mellnight)Well, I did confess to being confused. I was pretty certain a PC user would have no use for such a file. A standard disk image of an audio CD is of no use to a Mac user why? I guess I'm out of my depth but it seems that you knew what Anamorpis needed and that's what counts. NRN
