To my great astonishment, I found that images created with CloneCD can be burned successfully be burned with the aid of a cuesheet and any program that can handle cuesheets!
However, I noticed that the only file listed in the cuesheet is the .img file, excluding the .ccd and .sub files. It is my understanding that the .ccd file is CloneCD’s version of the .cue file, containing information about the CD layout, size, etc. So I don’t really think that this file is too essential.
But doesn’t the .sub file contain important subchannel data that the .img file does not? I thought that some of this subchannel information is actually essential to create a backup of some CD’s, especially with those that contain certain copy protections.
So, what happens to this subchannel data when another program is used to burn just the .img file? Is this data useless? Is it lost? Is it somehow included in the final backup? Thanks in advance.
