    So, I'm wondering how I burn a cd without actually using a physical cd, basically, create a readable image of the cd. I have some bin/cue files as well as flac files which I want to read, but can only do so if they are burned on a disk. So, I'm wondering if there is a simple way to do this, so itunes can read the "cd" as a cd and can import the flac, and so dvd player can read the divx

    I do this on Windows a lot. Rip to FLAC for archival using EAC, create an audio CD image, and then import that to iTunes. ISO won't work since it's an audio CD, not a data disc.

    I haven't found a way to do this in OS X myself though I don't have Toast.

    Another alternative would be to just convert the FLAC to AIFF or WAV and import that it iTunes and convert.

    Anyone have any other suggestions? What do I do for the bin/cue file?

    Rename the BIN file to WAV?

    Find a CUE splitter and pull out the individual tracks? (I know they exist for Linux).

    Make your disc then save as a disc image.

    Mount the image and iTunes will be able to read it.

    Sounds like you want to create new disk images from the original Bin/Cue files. Try these instructions and see if you get anywhere:

    Open Toast
    Click the Copy Tab
    Click the little Play button next to CD/DVD Copy to open the side panel
    Choose Bin/Cue Files
    Click Select in the main window and select the Cue you want to work with
    Once the Cue file is selected, Click the File Menu and choose Save As Disk Image. This will create a new disk image of the Bin/Cue file that Toast can mount.
    Once the image is created Click the Utilities Menu and choose Mount Disk Image.
    Choose the image you just created and mount it. Now OS X will think the image is an actual disk and your apps should believe it too.
