Hi guys,
i've been using foobar for years and there's always been a little problem that bothers me.
Let's say I have a FLAC image (i.e. album.flac) and a cue file to handle it (album.cue).
The beginning of the cue file is:

REM GENRE "Rock / Pop Rock / Soft Rock / Blues Rock"
REM COMMENT "ExactAudioCopy v1.0b1"
PERFORMER "Afdgfdgf"
TITLE "Wereregfrgf"
FILE "album.wav" WAVE

If I click on the cue file, foobar says "Unable to open item for playback (Object not found):" and I have to open the cue file with notepad and change ' FILE "album.wav" ' to ' FILE "album.flac" '.

foobar could try and find a file named album.* and try to open it, don't you think?

I hope Peter can do something for this!

Thank you!

The problem itself is why do you produce incorrect cue sheets? It's easy to configure the ripping program to refer to the actual file. Or why not use fb2k to rip? It has an accurate rip support.

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe
