I want to make a small image of a music CD

Nero’s *.nrg files are huge.
WinISO doesn’t work with music files.
What can I use to make a small image of a music CD?

Thanks

The image size is basically going to be the same for all programs give or take abit. 700mb on the disc is going to equal an image of ~700mb. You could try compressing it with WinZip. WinRAR or WinAce.

What do you want to do with the image files.

Other than what Womble said, only thing I can think of to reduce size is ripping the files to MP3, but there will be some loss of quality then…

I just wanted to store them as backups. Some CDs were terribly scratched and took forever to make an image.

try rip dvd with eac , compress with monkey’s audio and make a cue.
the size will get smaller about 40%.
them you can burn with eac or divide the wave in tracks and burn in a normal program.
nero, for example.
take atention to the gaps betwen tracks.
