Question How to Write Audio ISO File from .wav Files


I have a machine with no CD writer. I have some .wav files that I want to make an audio ISO from.

How would I go about this, preferably from the command line?

Kind Regards,
Harold Clements

Are you talking about creating an ISO file with the wav files as data, or an ISO in a CD format to just burn and play instantly?

There is no such thing as an audio ISO file.
The wav files can be burned to an audio CD via several CLI utilities like cdrecord (AKA wodmin) or cdrdao and so nothing else is really required.

An ISO (originally shorthand for ISO9660) file is a byte for byte image of a CD filesystem. However, audio CDs do not have a filesystem and have to be ripped to music files to store on a hard drive such as wav or MP3 etc.

Michaelk beat me to it. But I was pretty much going to say the same thing; You can create an ISO of wav files no problem, but not in CD format.

OK, same question but replace ISO with .bin (or .ngr or .img). In Windows, I can used ImgBurn to create .bin of an audio CD. I want to be able to create an image, in an audio cd format from my wav files.

Thanks guys for your help this far.

Did you try to use cdrecord or maybe Brasero to covert you're wave file into a CDDA and than burn it to disc

Thanks for the replay. I do not have a CD writer attached to this machine in question (hence why I want to create an image). Can cdrecord create an image? All the example that I have been show burning a disc?

You can burn a disc with different file types
You like to have a audio cd .
That is why you need a CDDA file type
CDDA stands for Compact Disk Digital Audio and that is what you want

Thanks again for your time.

I understand that the ISO filesystem is not compatible with CD audio. What I was trying to ask was that as I do NOT have a CD writer I wanted some way to be able to make an Audio CD (CDDA) image file of the .wav files that I created.

However, I still don't understand how to create a CDDA image. All the ways that I have seen thus far show how to write the .wav directly to the CD (in CDDA format) and as I do not have a CD writer they are not much good. Hence needing to write (in CDDA format) to an image.

Thanks again

Hi harold
From what you say, the below is what I understand.
You do not have a cd writer with you as of the moment.
You want to create an image file of the songs that you have.

If you have brasero in your system, all you have to do is click on audio project and add all the songs you want and since you do not have a writer with you, brasero will give you the option of burning them into an image file. You will get a notification on top which will intimate you about this, and at the bottom where you have the burn button, you will have the path to where the image file will be burned. I don't know if any other software will give you the same option, since I only have brasero.

I do not know if the resulting image file will play on any player, never having tried it, but theory seems to suggest that it will. it will however play if you mount it from your drive itself, but since you already have the songs I don't see why you should.
I hope I have helped, and I would definitely like to know if this suggestion of mine works. Please let me know if it does.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Brasero had the features that you described and created me a .bin image file. However, I tried burning that image on my Windows machine and the tracks were heavily distorted.

It was worth a try. I think my Windows machine is not quite redundant yet.

Thanks again for your time,
Harold Clements
