CD-Images with red-book audio possible?

Hi there, the CD-Rom in my G4-cube does not eject my cd's properly.
I just tested to create a toast 4.1.2 image of my game cd e.g tombraider gold.
Toast writes a fill image of the CD, so the cd-audio track(s) (redbook) are included.
The game startes, but there is noch CD-audio at all. other sounds are fine.

Is it possible to make cd-images of games and play with mounted images while having red-book cd-audio?

Thx
Doc

Toast (or .iso) images do not include audio tracks with the game track. If you make a bin/cue image of the CD (this will include the audio tracks) then I believe you can mount the bin/cue using Daemon Tools for Mac, although I have never tried this to see how well it works for playing the game.

Very few games (especially in OS9) can tell an image from the real disc. Just save both data image and audio image as self-mounting images with this: https://macintoshgarden.org/apps/make-smi and it's even possible to make an Applescript that mounts the images and unmounts them when the game is closed (looping every few seconds in the background to see if the program is still running). This is even easier in OS9 because Finder can handle so many more functions than in OSX. The only drag is you usually have to hard-wire the locations, as Applescript in OS9 doesn't have very good "Path to Me" variables.

Don't think that this will be for OS9...

Try putting the Cube on it's side instead of in the Toaster position.

For imaging combined disks you need to use bin/cue in Imgburn.

Toast can re-create (burn) copies from bin/cue but cannot correctly create the needed files

Thx, I never thought about using windows-software to create an iso or bin/cue.
that should be no problem because I have lot's of old windows-systems. I used "clonecopy" before, but I will give imgburn a try... beeing able to mount the images and having redbook-audio is essential to me, we will see how it turns out. Thx!

But you can burn a real CD using Toast.
You've tried using Toast 5 to mount them?
