Burning a disc image named .iso to a cd/dvd ? So what happens ? Do you get an error ? You can burn .iso image to a disc with the Burn Disc Image feature (button on top menu of the Disc Burner).

EZ CD is always using Unicode character set and therefore there should never be a problem with the file names.

Just tried the same format.

The problem is the

; 2535333.333 milliseconds

invalid comment in the end of the FILE field.

Remove the invalid comment and it should work fine.

I will check if it is possible to improve the CUE parser so that it can ignore the invalid ; comments in the FILE field.

Just tested it more.

The problem actually is the dot . in the invalid comment. If you remove the dot, it works. :shock:

Parser uses the dot to find out the location of the file extension.

Please note that the Cue Sheet specification does not allow inline comments starting with ; so the Cue Sheet itself is considered as invalid.

To backup my blame for invalid Cue Sheet syntax I tested it in Foobar2000 and VLC.

Foobar2000 shows parser error message:

VLC does not play the file unless I remove the invalid ; comment field.

Open the .cue file in a text editor. E.g. Notepad.

Remove the comment starting with the ; in the FILE line.

Save the file.

btw please add a feature to fix cue if the format (and filename) is changed.
and add a option on convert (profile) to fix it automatically
