Embedded CUE sheet help needed for APE/FLAC/WV/M4A or Tag Edit From CUE File
Guys, I have the following problem:

I have close to 1,000 lossless APE / FLAC / WAV / WV / M4A albums in a folder called: P: \ HD13 \ APE FLAC WV M4A \ 16 Bits \

When organizing my lossless audios to use with the Dune Music Manager program, for my media server / tank DUNE HD SOLO LITE 4K, I'm encountering some problems:

1. I have single lossless files with cue, and files with separate tracks with cue.
2. The program is not showing GENRE or DATE of the albums, because it takes this information from the lossless and not from the cue that is with the REM command.

I did a test here with foobar2k and I got through inserting the cue in the lossless APE / FLAC / WAV / WV / M4A files and I noticed that it made the embedded of these cue also updated the TAG GENRE and the TAG DATE, only has a serious problem, I have to do this manually through the commands: Utilities / Edit Cuesheet / Enabled Embedded Cuff In This File and Load Cuesheet and OK, because I do not know how to use foobar2k in command line and I do not even know if this is possible.

When searching a lot in google I found a line command script with the program TAG.EXE, but it is old and the script that I copied to make the changes recursively had an option -f that gave error, probably the script is old and this option is now another, and since there is not much tutorial on how to use this program I was not able to use it.

So what I need to organize my lossless audios is something like:

1. Read these folders with almost 1,000 lossless audios (APE / FLAC / WV / M4A and maybe WAV) and insert the tags of these CUE files for these lossless audios, but not manually, but in batch, read to folders and subfolders, find this files only LOSSLESS and its respective CUE and change the TAGS of these files.

2. Or use a program like TAG.EXE, inside a command line script that reads folders and subfolders, find the unique LOSSLESS files and their respective CUE and change the TAGS and / or embedded CUE file for these LOSSLESS unique.

3. Or I can use FOOBAR2K in command line, for the command that I executed manually, Utilities / Edit Cuesheet / Enabled Embedded Cuessheet In This File and Load Cuesheet and OK, for all the LOSSLESS files of the aforementioned folder, doing the embedded from CUE files to the LOSSLESS of all subfolders in the above folder: P: \ HD13 \ APE FLAC WV M4A \ 16 Bits \.

Thank you for your attention, and I hope one of the audio masters of this renowned forum can solve this problem by bringing a viable solution.

P.S. They wanted to excuse my English, I live in Brazil and I used google translator, I know that it is not the best solution, but it was the only one I found at the moment.

I personally have converted all my cuesheet combined files to separate files using foobar2000. Works flawless.

Friend your response is totally out of context for what I'm needing, yet thank you for responding, and no I do not need what you did, even though there are many media servers / tank on the market that has the infamous GAP between the album tracks with separate tracks which is not feasible for concert albums and albums with continuous tracks (Pink Floyd, The Alan Parsons Project, etc.), so I preserve many unique albums with their corresponding CUE.
