I am having more struggles....

ImgBurn won't open my EAC cue sheets to burn my my FLAC and ALAC files, so I did some reading and learned I need DirectShow filters installed on my computer, I think to convert these formats to the audio form that can be used by ImgBurn for burning CDs. So I downloaded and installed the "DC-Bass Source Filter" from here: ( http://dsp-worx.de/?n=15 ) and now I get a different message when I try to open the cue sheet in ImgBurn:

"The program can't start because OptimFROG.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this program."

I don't know why I need OptimFROG for FLAC and ALAC files. I downloaded it anyway, but can't figure out what to do with it.

.....Thanks!

Thanks for the replies.

I did use EAC for ripping (and I do understand that is EAC's primary use). I had been hoping to use ImgBurn for burning, but by the time I wrote my second post I thought I would have to use EAC's built-in burning feature because I couldn't get ImgBurn to work with FLAC files.

I tried changing "FLAC" back to "WAVE" in one of my cue sheets (but left the track file extensions as .flac) and opened it in ImgBurn again, but I still got the error message about the OptimFROG.dll. I then put OptimFROG.dll into the DC-Bass Source folder and it appears to have solved the problem! I assumed DC-Bass Source included everything it needed, but I see now that OptimFROG is proprietary, so maybe the author(s) of DC-Bass Source can't legally distribute OptimFROG.dll. Out of curiosity, I then changed "WAVE" back to "FLAC" in the cue sheet and was still able to open it in ImgBurn and successfully burn a CD. So I'm wondering, is it okay to leave the "FLAC" labels in the cue sheet or is there another reason why I should leave them as "WAVE"?
