    Software wanted to create Audio CD iso IMAGE from FLAC/WAV files


    Hi folks
    is there any software around to create an Audio CD IMAGE (iso) (must not require a physical device) from flac / wav tracks.

    I need this so I can burn a couple of "Virtual ISOs" to a NAS from which a remote user can retrieve the iso image and then use a CD /DVD burner to create a phyical CD for his car.

    I don't have any physical burners and all the software I've seen will allow you to create an audio CD but the wretched software always wants a physical drive rather than simply "burn image"

    Typically this type of message :

    I don't care how old the software is - I've got XP VM's and even W95/W98 if the thing would work on those too.

    I can't be bothered to get a cheap external physical DVD / CD device - got enough cables and then I'd have to go through the rubbish fof sourcing blank CD's !!! No thanks.

    Cheers

    You can write files to a ISO using CDBurnerXP, tried it just now by copying a few tracks as you would to burn a CD but choose to write ISO.
    Seems too work ok

    So "Clever Dick"

    what's the answer then or isn't there any --

    You're usually full of destructive critiscm but I have yet to see a clear concise easy naswer from you --if everbody knew 100% then what need of google Internet etc.

    I suspect you'd be quite hideous to work with though. Decent teachers correct mistakes not gloat over them !!!

    Hi there
    did you try mounting that iso and then try to play it with say VLC or whatever. There's no trouble creating DATA isos - but audio iso image files when you don't have a physical CD seem something else.

    Hello @jimbo45,

    AFAIK, Nero (paid) can do what you want but in .nrg format which is like .iso. Then you have to install a virtual drive app that can support, among others, .nrg format, like ImgDrive (free).

    Also, Foobar2000 can easily do something like that. It can create only one file including (merging) your album/compilation, with a cue sheet, if you select to convert/save them as "Generate multi-track files". If you're interesting to that I can explain you how to, but not now cause I have to go to work.

    The advantage of Foobar2000 solution is that you can convert/save your files in whatever format, wav, flac, mp3 etc, keeping all tags and then, you need a player which supports .cue files (cue sheet is like a playlist) like VLC, Foobar2000 etc., or a virtual drive to mount the image like file by loading .cue file.

    Here are some possible solutions...

    Making an Audio CD .ISO file

    burning - Is there a way to "burn" audio to an ISO? (as an audio CD) - Super User


    Back in the day these programs could deal with just about all image formats, convert back and forth, and most can create virtual CD/DVD..

    Power ISO, Ultra ISO, Magic ISO, Nero, etc.

    Hi folks
    easy enough to create bin/cue/nrg files from the original CD and then use that as virtual audio iso to do what you want with it

    the question nobody has answered is can I create an audio CD image from a load of flac / wav files.

    Using a CD/RW I can get an Iso file but what a long winded process --surely there must be a method to get a CD audio image without having to burn a physical medium first.

    Anyway once you've actually got the image then all the other stuff "works as designed" --e.g copy CD to MiniDisc.

    Hey Jimbo,

    From what I was looking at, I think that BurnAware can support your FLAC files and it can take a collection of them and turn them into an ISO file for you.
