I compiled cdrdao for Mac OS X. This can burn bin/cue files very easily. The only cue/bin pair which haven't worked for me thus far had spaces and hyphens in the filename. Changing the filename and editing the cue file to reflect that solved the problem. You can download my binary from here: http://homepage.mac.com/anarkhos/.Pictures/cdrdao.tgz The command is used thusly: Insert a blank CD, tell the finder to ignore the CD and continue. type: sudo ./cdrdao write -device IOCompactDiscServices blah.cue If run as root cdrdao will use high priority threads to avoid underruns. If you have a DVD burner you would use "IODVDServices" instead. If your CD-R isn't known (like mine wasn't) you can select a specific driver. For example this is in my .tcshrc file: alias cue sudo /Users/anarkhos/cdr/cdrdao write --device IOCompactDiscServices --driver generic-mmc thus to burn anything I just type "cue blah.cue"
