A bandmate burned our disk with wrong gaps between songs. I have re-imported the .aiffs, made 1 long track, and put together a .cue sheet to divide the track at the correct places.

 

I have a .cue file that points to the audio I want to use, but drutil gives me a file/path error. Is it looking for a .bin instead of a .aiff?

 

I ran "drutil burn" on the entire folder, and it errored on the .cue but burned the .aiff with no info. Is this now a .bin?

 

I cannot figure out how to burn these files onto a CD (or .dmg, .iso etc.).

    Try using a 3rd party solution.  There are some free ones (i.e. Burn, Disco)

    Thanks, Tony, for the reply.

     

    I've downloaded both programs, but can't figure out how to associate the two files. Disco just want to make a disk with both the .aiff and the .cue on it, but not splitting the trax with the .cue.

     

    Burn likes the .aiff, but not the .cue, unless I'm burning a data CD.

     

    Am I missing something? Is my .cue formatted wrong (I formatted based on wikipedia and Audacity)? Audacity wiki is where I got the idea that this was possible. The wiki just assumes that any DiscAtOnce burner could split it from a .cue sheet.

     

    Is this possible on a Mac, or should I convert this to a .wav and get one one of my Windows buddies to do it?

    I just tested this and drutil works with aiff+cue files

    (I used XLD (a good ripper) to export a CD to aiff+cue)

    Then I successfully burned a CD with:

     

         drutil burn /Users/Tony/Desktop/The\ Beatles\ -\ Revolver.cue

     

    I suspect that there is an error in your cue file (The FILE must be quoted and end with WAVE and the AIFF and CUE file are in the same directory (the Desktop in my example))

     

    The cue file I generated looks like:

     

    FILE "The Beatles - Revolver.aiff" WAVE

      TRACK 01 AUDIO

        INDEX 01 00:00:00

      TRACK 02 AUDIO

    Awesome, Tony. I think you've got it. I was ending my FILE line with AIFF not WAVE.  I'll try that.

     

    A couple other things. In the email sent by the forum the REM lines showed up, but they didn't here (note to admins!!). Is all that info lost in the burn? Is there any way to preserve Disc and Track metadata and get it onto my CD so it show up titled instead of Audo CD?

    Oh, I just edited the post.  REM is a "remark" (just a note in the .cue file).  Yes, anything after REM is not burned to the CD.

     

    Some CD Burners cannot burn Text Info to the CD.

    Just try adding the info to your .cue.  drutil will give an error if your CD burner can't burn Text Info.

     

    For example:

    TITLE "Revolver"

    PERFORMER "The Beatles"

    REM DATE "1966"

    FILE "The Beatles - Revolver.aiff" WAVE

      TRACK 01 AUDIO

        TITLE "Taxman"

        INDEX 01 00:00:00

      TRACK 02 AUDIO

        TITLE "Eleanor Rigby"

        INDEX 01 02:38:06

      TRACK 03 AUDIO

        TITLE "Love You To"

        INDEX 01 04:46:15

      TRACK 04 AUDIO

        TITLE "Here, There And Everywhere"

        INDEX 01 07:47:13

      TRACK 05 AUDIO

        TITLE "Yellow Submarine"

        INDEX 01 10:13:19

      TRACK 06 AUDIO

        TITLE "She Said She Said"

        INDEX 01 12:53:45

      TRACK 07 AUDIO

        TITLE "Good Day Sunshine"

        INDEX 01 15:29:58

      TRACK 08 AUDIO

        TITLE "For No One"

        INDEX 01 17:39:64

      TRACK 09 AUDIO

        TITLE "I Want To Tell You"

        INDEX 01 19:40:64

      TRACK 10 AUDIO

        TITLE "Got To Get You Into My Life"

        INDEX 01 22:10:53
