Yes, that's exactly my point. When I installed Ubuntu for the very
first time in summer 2007 (Ubuntu 7.04) I was very impressed that the
default burning software (Gnomebaker) let me burn my 24-bit files
directly without having to convert them first. I don't burn Audio CD's
very often but a few days back I tried to and then I found this ”bug”
or lack of feature.

So I installed the old Gnomebaker and tried again, this time successfully.

Anyway, this issue was only mentioned as a background description to
the question I wanted to ask, so back to my question again, please:

Can I ”burn” to an image file with Gnomebaker, instead of burning
directly to a CD? If so, how? Because I failed to figure it out…
