nero does not split files according to cue file

I have a wav file from Total Recorder with an associated cue file. Burning ROM 14 processes the wav file but does not break it up into tracks. I have done this successfully in the past using Burning ROM 10. What is the required procedure?

  • Hi Dan-

    If the file is on your hard drive, you must be using Encode Files and you have to select the .wav file. However, I don't know how it would see the cue file.

    Or, are you creating a audio cd compilation? If you are, you can import the .m3u cue file.

  • I have numerous old cassette tapes that I have decided to transfer to CD. The file in question was created by capturing audio from a Tandberg cassette deck to a 64 bit Win7 machine through line-in using Total Recorder. The captured audio, with the audio from one side of a cassette, is a wav file, and after removing certain portions of the file, I can use Total Recorder to split the file into tracks by creating a cue file. Total Recorder does not actually split the file physically, but the cue file can be edited to contain text info.

    Total Recorder can in fact physically split the wav file into tracks according to user defined split conditions, and I have done this in the past. But it was my understanding that Burning ROM could use the cue file, which contains track timing info, to split the large file into separate tracks during the burn process. Am I mistaken?

    You wrote that I must be using Encode Files. What does this mean?

  • I know that Burning ROM uses the cue file because the CD resulting from the burn, although it comprises only a single file, contains the CD Text with all the track info that could only come from the cue file. BTW, the cue file has the extension .cue.

  • I take it back. CD Text was not on the CD, except the name of the large file itself.

  • In Burning Rom, select New. Under the Extras tab, you can select Encode Files. You would use this as I mentioned. Since this won't import a cue file, all you will have is a single .wav file. You could add track splits to it in WaveEditor and convert to mp3.

    If you select Audio CD to create a compilation, you can import the cue file as the source. I think it will list the individual tracks. However, you would need WaveEditor to save the files as .mp3.

    With WaveEditor installed, you would use Burning Rom, as in my last pararagraph. You could then select all the tracks, right click and select Audio Editor. That should open WaveEditor and the track splits should be there automatically. Then you would click on File, Save tracks as and then select mp3.

    There may be other ways to do this. I'm going off the top of my head.

  • I was typing while you were posting. Please ignore my comments about converting to mp3. I was thinking of a different post. I don't have time right now to explore further.
