Re: Using a Virtual CD Driver to Rip a Virtual CD

Steve Matzura

I've been trying to do that for years, but somehow it never works out! I'll keep on it though.

This is so complicated. Just ask him to upload the .wav file to a
third party file transfer service. I am a field recordist and do this
for producers all the time. Keeps things simple and the producer can
start editing the .wav file immediately without messing with
unnecessary technology.

A musician friend of mine has decided that the best way to send me some
files to work on is by making an audio CD from his hard-disk recorder,
packing it up into a BIN+CUE package with IMGBurn, and sending it to me
via Dropbox. Now I have these two files, I can unpack them and burn them
to a real compact disc, then use a program like Exact Audio Copy to
extract the audio into the WAV files which he should have sent me in the
first place so I can work with them. The problem is, he's done this so
many times before, and frankly, my media supply is gettin' low! So I
thought maybe I could use one of these free CD clone drivers like
Elaborate Bytes' Virtual Clone Drive
<> to unpack the BIN+CUE package
with IMGBurn, then use EAC to extract the WAV audio. My questions are:

1. Is this scenario even possible? Is that what VCD is supposed to
do--be a virtual CD drive where the user can mount a virtual disc and
treat it as if it were a real one?

2. I tried mounting the .BIN of the BIN+CUE pair, and VCD didn't do it.
Is this format different from the kind of BIN VCD is looking for?

3. Is there a program that can take my BIN+CUE pair made with IMGBurn
and turn it into something VCD *CAN* mount?

Thanks in advance for any help on this one.
