Re: .cue

The cue sheet just tells the authoring software how to burn the disc. You still need the .wav files during the process.

It's a way of making sure the duplicate disc matches the original in all aspects.

You can use imgburn and EAC to burn with these, if I remember correctly.

Re: .cue

Some burning software require .cue sheets, such as command line progs like cdrdao, but it's quite easy to generate a basic .cue sheet with a shell script. Otherwise, if you don't need it, don't fret it, it's just a small text file.
