  1. Yeah, I noticed the difference with the INDEX command when ianymaty left a Wikipedia link. As for the short time between tracks, it was done on purpose due to it being a live session with an audience. I wanted it to flow the same as the live show, yet give me the ability to jump between songs. On my computer I can barely hear the difference. In my car I can't hear a difference, I actually studied this as it went from 1 track to the next and still couldn't hear the break point. Also if it helps someone else to do this, I never mentioned from my post above how I got the basic info for the CUE file when I've never written one before -maybe?. True enough the same Kodi page had examples. But my starting info was actually generated via Imgburn when I made my referenced single file into a CUE file in Imgburn thinking it was going to do all the work for me with separating the tracks. I later pulled up this generated CUE file in Word Pad (@Lightning UK!'s suggestion)and tried to figure out what was missing by looking at the Kodi CUE example page. There is strangely not allot of how-to's for this info on the web, but I knew if I could just get some example versions I could write-in what I was missing myself. I guess I might find it interesting to experiment some more to see if the "INDEX 00" to "INDEX 01" points of bigger deviations would have the same effect as the "PREGAP" command if I wanted to write-up a CUE sheet of a studio album that has traditional silences between tracks but was saved as 1 continuous track/single large audio file. Unfortunately even though my car stereo has the ability to decode data over the airwaves aka HD radio. In CD mode it was unable to read the metadata that I put in for the track titles. It would of been nice to have that, but now that I think about it I've never seen info come up from store bought CDs either. The info populated in Foobar however so I know it's doing what it was programed to.
  2. Well, it only took 2 days but I tracked down a wiki for kodi and adjusted my format accordingly. I'm happy to say, not only was I able to break the file into tracks (indexes) I was able to add titles for the songs as well. Here's the final format for other lost frustrated souls that want to accomplish the same task. On a side note, any idea why i have to keep resetting my password to log back in? My browser saves the exact info I use, however when I go to re-log in the site never accepts the info and I end up resetting things again =\ Regardless, Lightning UK thanks for the inspiration to DIY this. It's not often where you can say to yourself "not getting the results that you want from what's out there? Make it yourself then"
  3. Is there such thing as a template for a CUE file so I can just write it in wordpad? I had the basic outline by looking at the CUE file generated by Imgburn so I then started adding index points. Imgburn accepted the file but did not heed any of the indexes I added and so I produced a second CD with just 1 big file on it. Which is to say I must of not gotten the syntax correct with the CUE file layout. This is the current CUE file. Everything after index 01, I added in.
  4. I have a WAV file that I processed through Imgburn to create a CUE file and then wrote it as CDA data to a disc that can play in my old school car CD player. Unfortunately it's about as good as a cassette tape. You have to fast forward through songs you don't want to hear. I checked the gaps option but unlike the last CD I made for my car the tracks weren't broken up automatically. So I started looking around for something that can cut up a large audio file into smaller ones. The first s/w I found was called Medieval CUE Splitter. It looked like that was going to be what I needed until I could find no way to split things only save it as a new CUE file in the same folder. The second software I found was Daemon tools ultra and then lastly CUEtools. In each s/w I'm lost as hell. All I need is a grid referencing the source audio and then some start and stop time inputs (indexing)to define each track. Why is is this so damn hard?

    Copy(image) my Win 8 on a DL DVD-R

    Yes, it's DL (DVD-9) discovery mode reports 2 layers. It was really messing with my head for a while cuz I thought companys like Dell and Hp and such were privy to special higher capacity single layer DVDs that were 5.22GB in size (yes, I went a little on the "conspiracy side" with this before realizing they don't care about the other 3+ GB of wasted space on the DL).
  6. OK, so they say to read the guides first before asking, well I DID and I found a guide for most of this, but it's not specific enough. The guide walks through how to write an OS to a Disc using the build mode of IMGBurn. The guide actually starts off with the words "This guide will take you through the steps in burning a pre-prepared Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 installation source directory to a disc." So stupid question, am I just creating an image as usual to fulfill the "pre=prepared" part of this guide or is that referring to the fact that MIcrosoft already made the disc? My question is "DO I need to DO anything before I follow this guide?" I was hoping to just create a image of a DL Win 8 DVD and then write that image over to a blank DL DVD-R is that not possible? Do I really need to build a DVD via Build mode?
