Split CD Images To Individual Tracks

Exact Audio Copy (EAC) may be the best CD ripper available today. Its ability to copy an audio CD as a single file, mirroring the actual structure of the original, allows you to make copies that are as close to perfect as you can get. But as good as these CD images are if you want to make an exact copy, the CUE files required for a media player to know where one track ends and the next begins are supported by very few pieces of software or hardware.

What Are Audio CD Images?

Often times when people think about CD images ISO files come to mind. Or maybe BIN and CUE files from CD-ROMs. Audio images are similar to BIN and CUE files but much simpler. The main thing to understand is that a single file can contain all the audio from an entire CD. This makes them very easy to keep a backup copy. Unfortunately most programs and hardware don't know what to do with the CUE file, making the audio play as one long single track. If you have one of these CD images you can use Medieval Cue Splitter to create the individual files they typical media player expects.
