Converting wav+cue to iso

Hi all,

I have a complete CD mastered to WAV+CUE. I'm looking for suggestions for (Windows) software to convert this to an ISO image file *directly* without going via CDR. (The cue file contains Index-0s and the audio is continuous through the pasues so I don't want to break it up into individual track files.) Sonoris can't do this and I understand this is also just about the only thing Imgburn can't do either.

This should be trivial but has me vexed!

IIRC it's not possible to create an ISO file from a CD-DA. So you cannot create an ISO file even via CD-R.

It's a common misconception that CD audio is similar to a data CD just because it's both on the same physical medium.

I remember CloneCD can do it (as well as I'm pretty sure all of the burning software) but directly from CDs, not sure you can "convert" wav+cue to iso.

IIRC CloneCD can copy AudioCD to BIN + CUE files, not to ISO.

I remember vaguely that there was software which could mount to virtual drive wav+cue, so you could do image with Nero, for example.

An "iso" holds one track's worth of data, with some filesystem such as ISO 9660, but maybe another, and 2048 bytes per sector. With a music CD you have several tracks, with 2352 bytes per sector. I think the "bin" in a BIN+CUE arrangement is same as a WAV but without any headers, so there is not much difference between the two. Maybe OP needs a special disc image like a DDP, which Reaper can write.
