Cannot split FLAC w/ CueTools—“indexes must be in chronological order”
Hey, I didn't know where I could get help with this so I decided to post here!

I'm having some trouble trying to get a single FLAC file to split with CUETools.

I get an error which states that "the indexes of the cue must be in chronological order."

Here is the cue data:

Code: [Select]
	REM DISCID XXXXXX
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v1.0b1"
PERFORMER "Unknown Artist"
TITLE "Unknown Title"
FILE "xxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxx.flac" WAVE

Well, did you check the indexes? Your INDEX 00s are nonsensical, because every one points to the same position in the file. This causes a break from chronological order, i.e. between TRACK 03’s INDEX 01 and TRACK 04’s INDEX 00 and the same for all successive pairs of tracks. In other words, within one file, each successive INDEX should point to a later time-point.

Try re-ripping with EAC’s other gap detection methods.

Sorry to ask a simple question in a slightly old thread, but how do you split a FLAC using CUE files?
The CUE file works to the extent that I can jump to different tracks in the single flac file.

That's because whatever player you're using is ignoring the INDEX 00 entries, or accepting them as-is.

The above post isn’t by the OP or about the same cue-sheet; I assume it’s just a general question.

icstm, you can use CUETools or foobar2000, to name two. There are a number of previous threads about your question that should help you out; try performing a search via the built-in Google bar for split flac cue or something along those lines.

Doing the search you describe comes up with previously read links, so I did read them, but in isolation of the program. There did not seem to be an idiot guide 

I will read them whilst looking at Foobar and post again if I run into problems
