Ape/cue error

vbimport

#1

Hi:
I have a ape/cue files. The usual procedure I use is this

  1. Convert ape to Uncompressed wav
  2. Use Nero and locate cue file and burn it as an image.

I get an error. The thing is that I can play the ape file using JRiver Media Center.
I’ve also tried Monkeys to split the ape into apl, but the program crashes.

Can I do something to fix this problem?

Here is the cue file:

You need to change the file’s extension to .wav. Then make sure both the WAV and the CUE sheet reside in the same directory and the filename of the WAV matches the FILE entry in the CUE sheet.

I never used Monkey Audio, so I cannot be of further help. See HydrogenAudio’s Lossless Codecs forum if the above does not solve your problem.

Thanks. I’ve got this:

CDImage.wav
CDImage.cue

Both reside in the same directory.

Apparently the cue sheet matches the aforementioned. Maybe they’re corrupt. Take a look and let me know what you think. If I missed something also let me know.

Thanks for answering. :slight_smile:


#4

Did you change this:

FILE “CDImage.ape” WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO

to:

FILE “CDImage.wav” WAVE
TRACK 01 AUDIO


#5

I just did but still keep getting the same error. I don’t think the ape file itself is damaged cause I can play it.


#6

What is the error?


#7

Never mind. I found the way: Using foobar

http://www.foobar2000.org/download.html

If you ask what kind of error it was, beats me. I just located the cue using Nero but an error ocurred. The same with feurio.

For general purposes it’s a good idea when a ape-cue error occurs to try this program foobar.

Anyways, thanks Never_Again. :slight_smile:

cdcdcdcd, can you read? :rolleyes::smiley:


#9

Why you ask me? I did everything stated above to no avail. I discovered foobar and it did the trick. No need to use the cue sheet with foobar. :a :wink: :cool:


#10

dont be sooo rude, hey guy whatever yr name is, open yr .cue with notepad and change .ape to .wav. i dont know why retards do this to their cues but we all have to deal with it.


#11

It’s not retarded. Good software like Foobar can burn APE+CUE just fine.

The retards are the ones who can’t figure it out.


#12

Do you mind telling us to whom are you referring to?

If someone comes here and asks about something he hasn’t a clue about, like ape and cue files it’s polite to give an explanation before labeling someone retard.

Yes, I opened the cue file, and changed it to .wav. Maybe the file itlsef is corrupt.

:a


#13

You have to change it to WAV, and have your decoded WAV file in the same folder as the CUE.

Or obviously the best way to do things is to use a program like Foobar which isn’t so retarded and actually supports compressed audio + cue.


#14

You can try Ape2CD which can burn ape+cue files. The trial version can burn 3 ape+cue files.
