how to make mountable single ISO file?

Recommended Posts

I am having difficulty with mounting image files I made for backup purposes of few of my music CDs.

My goal is basically to be able to mount a CD or a CD copy on a hard-drive to play music in the background without converting all that to mp3. I can easily mount a DVD ISO file with WinCDEmu-4.1.


But not CDs - I mean the files don't mount - because they are somehow not right.

The WinCDEmu-4.1 program says "unknown or corrupted image file" when I try to mount any of the .cue files.

The files I got are *.bin files with *.cue files - and I don't know what to do with those.


I thought about saving them in ISO format - since mounting an ISO file works.

But I tried setting this before saving the file and it says "ISO is not an appropriate container for the current disk" "the file will be created with a .bin instead"


Thank you upfront for all explanations.

I don't think WinCDEmu supports audio tracks, you'll have to find an alternative.


Oh and as the program has already told you, ISO is not suitable for proper audio tracks (CDDA).

Try VirtualClone Drive.  I use that and I believe it mounts BIN/CUE files of audio CD's.  Although I think you have to "tell" VirtualClone Drive to associate .CUE files manually.

Ah, that was it.  CloneCD files was what it supported.  However, I believe ImgBurn creates them when it reads an audio CD image?  I believe that's what I've been using, some extra option you can set in ImgBurn in create .CCD files with an image read?
