Burrrn: Burning audio CD from FLAC files

I have an album and the .cue file for it on my desktop. When I drag the .cue file to burrrn, all 16 songs appear and it looks like everything is ready to go. I click the “Burrrn” button and I get the following error message:

ERROR: Cannot open audio file “C:/DOCUME~1/xray/LOCALS~1/Temp/burrrn_temp/01_Electric Ladyland.wav”: No such file or directory
ERROR: C:\Program Files\Burrrn\burrrn.toc:67: Cannot determine length of track data specification.

I’m guessing the problem is it’s looking for .wav when it should be FLAC?

What am I doing wrong? Please use simple language; I’m totally new at this. :bigsmile:

My guess is that your CUE file has references to *.wav files instead of to .flac/.fla files (or whatever your FLAC files are called).

Try opening the CUE file in an editor (e.g. Notepad) and look for the file references.

You could also post the content of your CUE file here if in doubt.

Welcome to CDFreaks! :slight_smile:

Thanks, DrageMester. It does mention WAVE.

At first glance the CUE file looks good to me, provided that there is a file called [B]Electric Ladyland.flac[/B] in the same folder as your CUE file.

You could try burning the CUE file with ImgBurn or ExactAudioCopy instead, both of which are free programs.

In the same folder? The CUE file and the “Ladyland.flac” file are both on my desktop, not in a folder. They have to be in a folder?

Okay, I just made a new folder on my desktop and put both files in there. Now what do I do?

If I can’t get this to work in Burrrn after hearing back from you I’ll give the other programs a shot.

[QUOTE=Kameo;2271532]In the same folder? The CUE file and the “Ladyland.flac” file are both on my desktop, not in a folder. They have to be in a folder?[/QUOTE] The Desktop is also a folder (although a special one).

What I mean is that the files cannot be in different folders, and the FLAC file must have the same name as stated in the CUE file.

Both files have the same name.

I just tried using ImgBurn using these instructions. When I click the ‘Open File’ button and add the .cue file, the album is all one file and not separated into tracks. I’m assuming if I burn it this way, I won’t be able to skip tracks.

Try going into Write mode instead and then select your CUE file as the source.

EDIT: As described here.

EDIT2: You might need to install the FLAC filter as listed here.

Thank you so much! I’ve been pulling my hair out attempting to figure this out by myself for hours now.

One last question: If I didn’t have a .cue file already made for me, is there a set of instructions out there that can help me make my own so the CD I burn has more than one track on it? Thanks again.
