How Do I View / Mount .cif Files Without Burning First?

Recommended Posts

I have a ton of backup .cif's on my hd that I've created over the years.

 

I can easily burn them to disc and do whatever I want with them, but how do I view the individual songs or mount the image ?

 

thanx much

What did you use to create the cif files? What I could find is " Corel developed CIF, which is still in use by Roxio's Easy CD Creator. (What does CIF mean? Nobody knows, though "Corel Image Format" is as good a definition as any.) "

 

Try

1) mounting a virtual disc and playing the cif files from there or

2) try the free VLC player to see if that will work If not,

3) go to cnet.com and search for a cif player. There are some free and some not so free . Be careful. I have not tried any of them.

Dee Gee,

 

If those are Easy CD Creator data .CIFs that you have, try Magic Iso or Power Iso. They both handle my old ECDC 4 data .CIFs.

 

If they're audio .CIFs you'll probably have to burn them to see what's in them (if you didn't name them wisely).

 

VLC player won't open 'em.

 

Regards,

Brendon

They are Easy CD Creator audio .cifs. Each one is a full CD. I've used numerous programs to mount, but they are still not viewable (probably because, as you stated, they are audio)

 

What I want to do is simply add them into my iTunes library without having to burn each one first.

 

thanx much

I'm afraid you might be s.o.l. there, Dee Gee.

 

I can't find any evidence that Creator inserts CD-text into an audio .CIF file.

Creator can burn CDs with text but only when burning from an audio disc project. There's none saved in a .CIF file [i looked]or in a CD burned from a .CIF file - I just burned one to test.

 

They didn't have iTunes back in 2003 :)

I do not need the text. I simply need to access the individual songs/wavs without burning.

 

If Roxio did not have a way of mounting or viewing their audio images, then they really designed poorly.

 

I'll keep looking.

 

thanx again
