I'm tired and not being very clear. Sorry!

I have one wave format file that is every song;
master01.wav and a Table of Contents file (cd.toc)
that describes the starts, lengths and text fields.

What I need is an image file that is exactly what gets
burned to the CD to be burned onto my hard disk. I
don't see where this can be done though. And Nick
Mainsbridge informs me that I can provide the
duplication house with the master01.wav and cd.toc and
they will burn the master. It makes sense. I'll upload
both files to a duplication house ftp server and see
how they respond.

Right, the loopback device rings a bell somewhere in
my memory bank. :)
