A little. I can see there how they can make an image of a data CD, but
that option is missing for Audio CD projects, unfortunately.

Yes, it seems so. My files are definitely 24-bit, the CD was burned
and I could play it in my nine year old car, which CD player only
supports audio CD.

That section describes how you burn an existing ISO image to a CD, but
I want to create the ISO image.

Well, it seems like I can only create images for data CD/DVD projects,
not Audio projects, so that's probably the answer to my question.
Thanks for helping and pointing me in the right directions.
