Burning Compressed Cue Sheet
Is there a way to burn a compressed cue sheet? I get an error when trying to load the cue sheet in EAC:

Error in CUE sheet !
File type is not supported in line 3

Line 3 reads:

FILE "Vertical Horizon - Everything You Want.mpc" WAVE

I also tried to load the cue in Daemon Tools and I get a similar error. I know that I could just covert the mpc to a wave, but I'd rather skip that step if possible. I'd like to store my Cds as compressed mpc cue sheets with accompanying mpc files. If I ever need to burn a copy, I'd like to be able to do so directly from the cue.

Never mind. I found that using Nero I was able to burn the cue. However, I believe you have to have the mpc decoder plugin installed for this to work correctly.

Back to my original question -- can EAC burn a CD from a cue sheet that references a compressed file? or do I have to first decompress to a wave and edit the cue sheet?

I know that (as I listed below) Nero can do this and I also have used Burrrn which works well.

I've done it with mpc cue sheets and it works.

How? As you can see from my first post, I also tried an mpc with cue and got that error. Are you decompressing to wave first? I'm referring to a compressed image (not individual files). I most recently tried with flac and it wouldn't work. What am I doing wrong here?

Are the decoders in your EAC folder?

Sorry i must have read over that little word "EAC" in your second post.  (feels stupid now)
I really haven't a clue, so i tested and only mp3 and wav according to EAC. Sorry for the mixup.(thought you were still talking about nero)

(I use burrrn for my cue sheets, as you said yourself it works, why not use that?)

Ok. Whew! Glad to know I'm not going crazy. Burrrn does work well and I've used it a few times. The reason I wanted to use EAC was for the write offset. It's not a huge deal but I just wanted to try it out.

Ok, I made sure I had mppdec.exe and flac.exe in my EAC folder. When I try to load the flac, EAC still gives me this error:

Error in CUE sheet!
File type is not supported in line 3

Line 3 says:

Code: [Select]
FILE "CDImage.flac" WAVE


So, I'm guessing EAC doesn't know how to decode a flac and burn.

However, when I load the cue for an MPC image, it seems to do some processing on the file. Execept then I get this error:

Error in CUE sheet!
INDEX position is behind end of FILE in line 7

Here is the CUE sheet where line 7 reads "INDEX 01 00:00:00":

I am having the same problem.. When I (with EAC) trying to write the CD, and trying to open a CUE I get the following error:

"Error in CUE sheet !"
"INDEX position is behind end of FILE in line 16"

I can understand if the ripper did something which he was not supposed to do if he'd still want to be able to burn it in EAC, but is there a way Now to see the gap settings on the existing files? (so I might be able to edit this CUE to the proper numbers myself)

Insert the CD and tell EAC to create the proper CUE sheet to go with the tracks as you ripped them.

If you don't own the CD then go buy it, rather than ask us to assist you in stealing it.
