I have EAC automatically detect gaps, and when i rip a CD that is gapless, the cuesheet reads fine in Foobar (i rip and create the cuesheet to multiple files).

However, when i have a CD that does NOT have gaps, it won't read in Foobar.

I realise that Foobar doesn't support the non-compliant cuesheets, but why does it read perfectly well if the CD i'm ripping from has no gaps?

Here's an example of the gapless CDs cuesheet that seems to read fine in Foobar:
CODE
REM GENRE Techno
REM DATE 1996
REM DISCID B40E520F
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v0.99pb5"
PERFORMER "Various"
TITLE "Strictly Techno 3 (Mixed by DJ Peewee Ferris)"
FILE "01. DJ Tom & Norman - Thunder God (Remix Version).flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Thunder God (Remix Version)"
    PERFORMER "DJ Tom & Norman"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
FILE "02. DJ Quicksilver - Bingo Bongo (Club Mix).flac" WAVE
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "Bingo Bongo (Club Mix)"
    PERFORMER "DJ Quicksilver"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00


Here's a cuesheet from a CD that is NOT gapless and doesn't read fine in Foobar:
CODE
REM GENRE Soundtrack
REM DATE 1986
REM DISCID 8509130A
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v0.99pb5"
PERFORMER "Various"
TITLE "Top Gun"
FILE "Various\Top Gun (1986)\01. Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone - Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone.flac" WAVE
  TRACK 01 AUDIO
    TITLE "Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone"
    PERFORMER "Kenny Loggins - Danger Zone"
    INDEX 01 00:00:00
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
    TITLE "Cheap Trick - Mighty Wings"
    PERFORMER "Cheap Trick - Mighty Wings"
    INDEX 00 03:31:64


Note that i rename the file extension so it works straight up in Foobar, but also the in the burning software i use (CDBurnerXP). Interestingly, CDBurnerXP also reads and burns the gapless cue fine - but doesn't like the cuesheet from a CD that has gaps.

Foobar's error in this case is: "Unable to open item for playback (Error parsing cuesheet: invalid index list (line 18)):
"C:\Users\Public\Music\_Archive\Various\Top Gun (1986)\Top Gun.cue""

I get varying line numbers, but always the same error.

I gather it has something to do with the Index 00 but i don't understand what, and just as important, what setting i might have to change in EAC to get it to work 'compliantly' for CDs that are not gapless. I turned on the advance settings to try to figure it out, but it's just confused me.

I've discovered this after archiving some 50 CDs too sad.gif If i can simply edit my .cue files to fix this problem that would be handy to know too)

Thanks.

Yep and I think you're exactly right referring to them as indices and not gaps in an attempt to distinguish two completely different concepts.

What makes it difficult is that they can be intertwined like when your burning program adds two seconds of silence between tracks, in which case they are usually marked with a 00 index, though this doesn't necessarily have to be the case. Then there's the case where a 00 index can mark audio such as applause between songs or an introduction to the next song on a live album. This is a situation where a "gap" marked by a 00 index is completely different from a pause in the audio.

Somewhat related and every bit as confusing for some is that EAC will list the pregap before the first track in a log as greater than 2 seconds if there's a 00 index before the first track and 2 seconds if there isn't, as opposed to just indicating if there are gaps present for all the other tracks. This is why I normally talk about gaps between tracks when making a distinction between sheets that are compliant an noncompliant.
