Re: ape file??

If you're just trying to archive the files, burn it as a normal data DVD. But if you're trying to make an audio CD-r (which I suspect is the case), then you need to decode the ape files to wav. Traders' Little Helper does this:

If you're on a Mac use xACT:

Re: ape file??

Re: ape file??

munchkin, you do realize that ape files are just like shn and flac files in that they are compressed *audio* files, not video, right? Whatever application you use to burn decompressed flac or shn files should be just fine with your ape files once you decompress them. But, you do have to decompress them first, I believe (not sure if foobar or other applications will burn on-the-fly with ape files).
