Trouble burning .cue/.iso/.wav cd with cdrdao

I have a rared file that when unrared gives me a .ISO file a series of .WAV files and a .CUE file. I try to burn them to the cd using the following command cdrdao write --device 0,0,0 --speed 12 SGI-RS.cue and I get the follwing error:

SGI-RS.cue:5: syntax error at "FILE" missing Eof
ERROR: SGI-RS.cue:5: Illegal token: W

Can anyone give me a hand figuring out whats wrong? I don't think it's the cue sheet itself because I've tried this with two files and gotten the same error.

I would just go ahead and burn the iso. Mount it first and see, most likely it will be the whole cd. Whoever rared it probably did it wrong is what I am thinking.
