    Can Mac burn ISO+CUE?
    I haven't seen a Mac application that can burn CUE+ISO+WAV (or AIF) files. Toast can burn CUE+BIN, but that is not the same thing... not even close. Nero on the PC can do CUE+ISO+WAV, why is the Mac so limited in what I can burn? No Mac developers want to step up to the plate and make an application that is as good as Nero?

    I'm pretty sure I've burned ISO files with Toast...

    But I find it easier to burn ISO images with the buildt in diskutility (that also can mount an ISO image.

    You can definitely burn ISO in Toast.

    A PC is just as limited as the mac in what it can burn. It's the software you buy from other vendors that does the work. Such as Nero.
    Perhaps it is Nero that is not stepping up and offering a Mac port!

    I've never even heard of cue+iso+wav format. Usually an ISO has everything, why would you need a cue file and wav files along side it?

    Have you looked at Toast for mac? It's the Nero equivalent:

    File Support
    Audio: AAC, AIFF, MP3, WAV, M4A, OGG, FLAC, and Dolby Digital AC-3
    Video:
    AVI, DV, MOV, MPEG-1/2/4, DivX, XviD, VOB, VIDEO_TS folder, iMovie projects, EyeTV recordings, TiVoToGo transfers
    Photo: BMP, GIF, PDF, PSD, PNG, TIFF
    Images:
    ISO, BIN/CUE, IMG, DMG, CDR, NRG

    I'd say calling Toast a Nero equivalent is an insult to Roxio.

    You don't need ANY burning software to burn a bootable ISO image. I have done so myself, directly from Disk Utility. Is this what you are trying to do?

    I think you all are not reading my post in its entirety. I want CUE+ISO+WAV (or AIF), not just ISO by itself. It needs to reassemble from a cuesheet. Toast cannot do this except with a BIN file (instead of ISO). The Cuesheet tells the burning program where the ISO goes (which is data) and where the audio tracks go (which is CD sound). Sometimes there is more than one ISO per disc interspersed with the CD audio files.

    I have Toast. It is OK at best. Nero destroys it. I really do wish Nero was available on the Mac. I can run it in Boot Camp but I'd rather not have to worry about booting back and forth and options like parallels doesn't appeal to me.

    I would not say Nero Destroys Toast, but Nero is an Excellent burning program for Windows. On Windows Nero is a lot better (at least to me) than Roxio's Windows software. I have used Nero for years now in Windows. Toast does pretty much everything Nero does except what you are after. I have frankly never needed to do what you are trying to do so don't miss that part at all. I make Images all the time and Bin/Cue's. Don't know what to tell you as I have not seen what you are after in any burning program for OSX, at least not that I know of. Will do some checking around and get back to you if I find something for OSX that does what you are after.

    People dont't understand the need.
    We are not asking about how to burn iso, i.e. easy to do with many softwares.
    What we need is it burn CUE+ISO files.
    Choses files are very specific for retro gaming: the roms of games for some consoles are in this format and when you download them what you get is 2 files: one is a .CUE and the other is a .ISO
    To burn them on CD-R we have tools for PC (Imgburn for example)
    Burning those files doesn't mean burning the iso file alone.
    As file to burn, we must select the CUE file which will tell the PC how to burn accurately the ISO file.

    This is the question we are asking here: how to do that on a Mac?
    Easy to do with a PC , tricky with a Mac if only possible :/

    Indeed there doesn't seem to be an easy method of doing it with the Mac. But also it looks like this is a very unique situation specific to the retro gaming area. Seldom will people develop apps to one-off situations. If you can do it with Windows, then go ahead and do it there.

    No reason to continue debating this topic here.
