Any other software to make CDImage ?

hi everyone,

I admire EAC feature allowing one to make a CDImage.wav + compress to
CDImage.ape or whatever else, - however it seems to me that EAC is only capable to do so for tracks to be ripped-off the actual CD inserted into one's drive.

I would have liked to make a disk-size compilation of files already available on my HD, - and to make the similar image, - but afraid EAC only allows you to choose
files from HD when you are in it's 'Write CD' module and in this module no 'create image and cue sheet' seems to be available.. .

is anyone aware of another piece of software which can make CDImage.wav
(from "independent" tracks on yr disk) + thereafter compress to *.ape ?

(f.e. NERO can make an image, but same is *.nrg and I'm afraid this cannot
be compressed to *.ape)

anticipated thanks

Sounds like a job for SHNTools, which can take many files and weld them together as one. I just DL'd it yesterday, so I don't know the in/outs of it yet. It's a command line program (no GUI or frontend). EAC does not appear able to generate a cue sheet from the wav, though.

One option would be to create an audio CD with your tracks, then rip it back off as one file with EAC, but then you would have generational losses if using lossy formats (no problem if not).
