Non-compliant cue problems

Post by medyas » Mon Aug 18, 2008 6:13 pm

I just downloaded several albums in the flac format. I have been able to convert the flac file to AAC as one big file, but I can't split the file into several smaller audio files because the cue files may be non-compliant. Each album comes with 3 cues. One can be opened by Max, but Max won't actually list the tracks or any other info. The other two cues both yield the following error message: "The document "DARKER THAN BLACK -Kuro no Keiyakusha- Original Soundtrack Gekihan" could not be opened. Unable to open the input file". They are basically the same file with the song titles in different languages. I'm looking for a way to perhaps edit the cue files so that they can be recognized by Max, or even create my own cue. I pasted the cue text below. The first one is the one that Max could open (sort of), and the second is the english version of the cue that Max couldn't open. I hope someone can help! Thanks!

Is there a file with the same name as the one indicated in the FILE line in the same directory as the cue file?

Other than album art there are five files in the folder:

DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack 劇伴.LOG
DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack.cue
DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack.flac
DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack.flac [EN].cue
DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack.flac [JP].cue

I hope that helps.

The FILE line needs to contain a valid filename- try changing it to FILE "DARKER THAN BLACK Original Soundtrack.flac" WAVE

That seems to work for the first file in terms of separating the flac file into appropriately sized mp3's, but that cue file doesn't include song titles. The file name is correct in the other cue file I pasted into my original post. Can that file be easily reformatted? If not, I'll just use the other cue file and enter the song titles manually. Thanks so much for your help so far! This is the first time that I've had a need for an app like Max and it works great!

It appears that the second cue file you posted has tracks 18-20 duplicated at the end. If you remove them it will likely work- everything else looks OK at a glance.

That was actually a pasting error on my part. The actual cue file looks fine.

However, I ended up pasting the album info and song titles etc. from the cue file that max couldn't read into the cue file that Max could open. As far as I could tell, the text in both cue files were identical, but for some reason, Max could only read one of them. In any case, I found a way to get it to work so I'm happy. Thanks again!
