[ProAudio] Can''t Burn CUE/BIN or ISO Files to CD

Hi, Jim,

I'm looking in the rearview mirror to find this technology. I have not 
burned many optical discs and those I have have generally been audio 
which I burned out of Samplitude.

At some point I used Nero and while it was great, I don't think it 
migrated well to Windows 10.

Someone on some list recommended the following application and I had 
success with it.

However, I'm not certain it will burn CUE/BIN files. I've never tried 
burning from those although Samplitude will generate the cue file. I 
have been able to burn IMG files that were sometimes distributed and 
needed to be burned to load.

Anyway, with all these caveats, I believe it's free to try and it's the 
same price as Roxio which I gladly left behind when I went to Nero.


Good luck!
