changed the .flac command line to the one recommended in â€œRoadworkerâ€™sâ€ post. [/QUOTE]
I could have a better understanding of the command line parameters for FLAC than I do. I looked mine over & I think I have one useless command which is " -o %dest% " ( without the quotes). I couldn’t find it in the list of flac commands so I will be removing it.
roadworker’s does a bit more than mine for “tagging” purposes & adds a “Comment” . Where it counts they are the same.
I then used the â€œCmdâ€ icon on the left side of the EAC window .[/QUOTE]
The icon actually is “CMP” . It is the “Copy selected tracks compressed” command . This is the same as using :
Action/Copy Selected Tracks/Compressed…
This process wrote the same list of .flac files to my output folder that I had been getting on my previous rips but this time I treated them as a file image and not the list of files which I had been treating them as previously. [/QUOTE]
I didn’t understand this very well.
The actual .FLAC file names are what ImgBurn creates the .cue from.
It references that location for the actual files in the ImgBurn.cue .
Neither is an image file.
I then let ImgBurn create the cue sheet and selected the â€œWrite image files to discâ€ button on Imgburn instead of the â€œWrite files/folders to discâ€ which I had been using previously. [/QUOTE]
I rarely use ImgBurn in “Ez-mode Picker” . In Tools/Settings/Events Start up is set to “Write” mode.
â€œWrite image files to discâ€ button = “Write” mode . I posted to use “Write” mode in my posts #2 & 4 .
â€œWrite files/folders to discâ€ = “Build” mode. This creates an .iso file.
This now creates the CD clone that I was looking for without any other problems (such as dropped tracks, etc.) [/QUOTE]
Glad you figured it out .
Overall, I have found both the program commands and documents for both EAC and Imgburn to be confusing however. On the EAC side for example, why would it occur to anyone that they should press the â€œCMDâ€ icon (and not the .IMG icon) when they wanted to produce a .flac IMAGE file? [/QUOTE]
As explained above no image file was created.What you have are individual .flac files for each title(song) on the CD . ImgBurn used these from the instructions in the .cue to write (burn) the Audio CD.
The same goes for the Imgburn side of things. Why would it occur to anyone that they should press the â€œWrite Image file to discâ€ (and not "Write files/folders to disc) when they wanted to write what is really a list of files (and not a single image file) to a disc. [/QUOTE]
Again ImgBurn uses a .cue file for this . a .cue file isn’t an image file.
The bottom line is that all of the confusion, for me at least stems from the fact that the â€œcd imageâ€ file produced by EAC and inputted to Imgburn is really a list of files (in this case .flac files) and not one large single .flac file as I had previously thought. [/QUOTE]
I hope I’ve cleared the confusion some.
To me, this is completely different than burning a DVD image where the input to the burning program really IS one large input file (.ISO) file and not a list of files. [/QUOTE]
Not exactly . Mount a DVD.iso in Virtual CloneDrive by slysoft. Then “Open” it in the virtual drive.
What is in the DVD.iso will look like a real DVD Opened in a DVD drive.
