Default {OT} cdrdao's toc2cue question

I patched cdrdao to recognize certain CD-TEXT types for its toc file
creation with the info here:

http://www.lackhead.org/2007/05/patch-for-cdrdao-122-cd-text-causing-crash/

but toc2cue fails to execute on such a toc file with a series of these:

ERROR: CD/cdda.toc:36: Invalid CD-TEXT item for a track.

Does anyone know how to add CD-TEXT types to toc2cue? The types I
need to add are:

CDTEXT_DISK_ID
CDTEXT_GENRE
CDTEXT_TOC_INFO1
CDTEXT_TOC_INFO2
CDTEXT_RES1
CDTEXT_RES2
CDTEXT_RES3
CDTEXT_RES4
CDTEXT_SIZE_INFO

I filed a Gentoo bug here:

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=238891

I think I just need a file location. The cdrdao list seems to be
dead. I tried to post to it a while ago and only received a message
that my message was awaiting moderator approval.

What do you like to do?

Did you try cdda2wav and cdrecord?

The CUE format interpreter in cdrdao is known to be incomplete.

I'm using a script I wrote to rip a CD twice (each rip creating a
binary file and toc file), compare the two rips with cmp, convert the
toc to cue with toc2cue, create a single FLAC file with flac, and
split the FLAC file into separate track files with cuebreakpoints.
I'd be happy to post the script if anyone is interested. It works
really well.

I'm very concerned with having as perfect a copy of the original CD as
possible. I read an article once about how cdrdao was the only method
that seemed to get it right.

How would you go about figuring out which file to patch to update toc2cue?

Just run:

cdda2wav -vall -B -Owav cddb=0 paraopts=minoverlap=10 -paranoia

then write the files using:

cdrecord -v -dao -useinfo -text *.wav

This has the advantage that it splits into separate files at the correct
locations. Note that cdda2wav is the only program I know that splits correctly.


The CD-Text is inside the *.inf files.

This is not correct, cdda2wav is known to be better for DAE.

I wrote the parser for cdrecord and it works for all cases I know.
Make sure to use the offocial cdrtools sources.....

You seem to be interested in _creating_ cue sheet files.

Why do you like to create a cue file anyway?

Cdda2wav splits the data at the right location and it icludes the paranoia code.

I read a comparison where somebody ripped a CD with cdrdao and a
couple other tools and then burned the images back to CDs and compared
the CDs, and cdrdao was the only one that ended up with being
indistinguishable from the original as reported by the tool he used.

I want to create a cue file because it's required for converting the
CD image to FLAC with the flac command. I'm actually not interested
in burning CDs, FLAC files only.

There have been several tests that show up that cdda2wav/cdrecord are
the best choice - even compared with Win32 programs.

Mmm I see no reason why there should be a need for a cue sheet just to do a
simple compression.

Can you point me toward any of those?

If not the flac command then cuebreakpoints. Is there a way to split
a FLAC file with a toc file?

2+ Years ago, there have been several long discussions in
de.comp.hardware.laufwerke.brenner

One is here
http://groups.google.de/group/de.comp.hardware.laufwerke.brenner/browse_thread/thread/355e88b312c2a2f1/269396c366fe2117?hl=de&lnk=st&q=cdda2wav+eac#26939 6c366fe2117
but there have been better ones...

Try to search for cdda2wav and EAC or ALCOHOL.... in
de.comp.hardware.laufwerke.brenner

cdda2wav writes a single file per track. Why do you like additional splits?
