I'm looking for another program to use when creating / editing / saving / opening Cue files associated with
I created an elaborate compilation, 29 songs, sources are WAV, mp3, and Flac . I'm burning a regular redbook CD.
However, after setting up the cue, with custom entered CD text and pregap info and saving it,
IMGburn does not honor the CD text and pregap info I entered earlier when I re-open - I either have to enter
everything again or find another burning program.
I've seen CDburnerXP mentioned, anybody have any recommendations ?

If I need it, good ole' CDRWin does it all (assuming you can get it to work on new OSes & devices). I'm surprised, though. I've never seen ImgBurn have difficulty. You should send a message to LightningUK (creator of ImgBurn), as he seems to be pretty responsive to suggestions.
I was a little surprised to see LUK is aware of it, as posts on his forum and his replies attest to.
The support is half there. With his editor you can create CD text and pre-gap for each track and it will be
used when you burn the project if you do it all at once.
The problem arises when you save the cue, and attempt to reuse it later, either as-is or to modify it before burning.
Gap and text info (although correctly present in the cue file) is simply not reread back into IMGburn
so it all has to be manually re-added - Why he left it like this is anybody's guess.
I remember CDRWIN from about 10 years ago. The author was pulling his hair out due to the pirating of his program.
For now I have installed CDburnerXP, seems OK; you have to watch out for opencandy during the install.
I may well uninstall it and try some of the other suggestions. Where can one find CDRWIN ? It was never free, was it?
Actually, Daemon Tools is one of the uncommon programs that support the .CUE+.WAV format.
Most "virtual-drive" applications support only the .CUE+.BIN type

I was wrong about Imgburn, let me set the record straight. If you open an existing cue, Imgburn does honor
any pregap or text when you burn the disk. It's only Imgburn's cue editor that ignores them if you re-open the existing cue for editing.
But that makes some sense, IMO. I would think that cue editor was meant to create stuff from scratch, not re-edit something already generated, so it probably isn't as full-featured (and might lose stuff along the way).
You should probably let LightningUK know about it anyway. I'm sure he wants his app to be the best it can be. However, AudioCD-related stuff seems to be a lower priority with him (as per previous conversations), so it might take a while to improve.
at least now I can uninstall CDburnerXP. You can get an idea of LUK's mindset from looking at his response
in this thread. I would say it's a very low priority, based on his attitude:
There's at least one other thread where somebody requests this as an enhancement to the product.
