quick EAC sQuestion

I have a dozen CDs -- ripped as separate tracks without a cue sheet. [Done with EAC] Is it possible to use EAC to make a cue sheet and reconstruct the tracks as one large .wav file and burn a CD from it?

If so, could I get a few brief tips on howto?

Thanks for any help you may offer.

No but you can load the individual wav files to burn a CD.

[ALT+w] > Layout > Append Files As New Track (Index 1)
You probably want 'Add 2 Second Gap On Append' unchecked

If you also have the physical discs then you might be able to just generate the appropriate cuesheet with EAC, without ripping the entire CD again? This often works even with damaged discs. But I assume you don't have them anymore?

Another option is perhaps CUETools / CUERipper instead of EAC. CUETools is able to generate a single image from separate files quite easy and is also able to generate a simple cuesheet. This will not be identical with the original disc however.

Not sure what you're implying. Are you referring to the content of the CUE? Using CUETools to join the tracks into a single image doesn't alter the audio data.

Thanks guys for your responses. The CDs in question belong to my brother who lives in a distant location.

When I first started using EAC I simply ripped the CDs into separate tracks.

Later, I started making two copies of everything – one ripped set on one drive, and one with Cue sheets and large .wav files on another drive.

I’ll give the cue-tools application a try  – and then of course there’s always used CDs on Amazon.

Again, thanks to all!

The audio content will be the same of course. What I mean is that CUETools will generate a cuesheet which is not the same as the extracted cuesheet via EAC.

If you have the original EAC extraction log, make sure it is in the same folder as the audio files
From the log CUETools can
  • detect Track 1 pregap (if any) (used to identify the CD for AccurateRip verification and will be included in the Image+CUE)
  • detect CD-Extra Data Track (if any) (used to identify the CD for AccurateRip verification)
  • Make use of any other pregap info  (if you detected gaps in EAC before ripping INDEX 00 info will be included in the CUE)

The audio content will be the same of course. What I mean is that CUETools will generate a cuesheet which is not the same as the extracted cuesheet via EAC.
Thank you for the clarification

A cues sheet is simply a text file so ou can create one manually with Windows Notepad (or similar).  You may not know the original gaps but that's probably not a big deal.  I usually start with an existing cue sheet or one of examples and then edit it.
