FLAC Files + Cues -> ISO?

All,

I've ripped a large portion of my CDs to FLAC (1 file per track) and extracted the EAC non-compliant .CUE for each disc.

I was wondering if there were any tools that could build a standard ISO file so that my Windows MediaCenter could "rip" the iso (using Daemon Tools) and collect all of the MS metadata without having to insert each disc again.

Failing the above, does anyone have any experience converting FLAC to WMA with the extra metadata that Windows Media Player downloads. I converted with DBPoweramp and it did a good job, but I still had to go track by track and pick the correct album for all the metadata to update. Not something I would want to do with 15,000+ FLAC files.


Thanks,
Cal

Why convert them to a ISO when you can mount a WAV and CUE. Just decompress the FLAC into a WAV-file and mount the CUE with Daemon Tools, i usually to do this with Alcohol 120%, where it's working a least.

BTW, isn't ISO 9660 the standard for storing data on a CD and CDDA is the audio equivalent.

The main reason is so the virtual CD (.iso) would have the same TOC for WindowsMediaPlayer to lookup in the proprietary Windows CDDB. If I just took the wav files the TOC would not match, and as of the last time I checked, Daemon Tools did not support the "EAC Noncompliant" CUE sheets.

Thanks,
Cal
