Why on earth would you suggest such a thing?

A: What I wanted to do:
Pick a FLAC file (24-bit)
”Burn” it to an image file

B: Your suggestion:
Pick a FLAC file (24-bit)
Burn it to a CD
Create a image from the CD

Since the reason for A was to save some time, since it's probably
faster to create an image than to burn a CD, how do B satisfy my
wishes? All I wanted to do was to see if Gnomebaker accepted my 24-bit
FLAC files and I just didn't want to go through the time consuming
process of burning a real CD only to test that. Now, I couldn't find a
way to directly ”burn” (create) an image, so I just burnt the CD
anyway. After doing that, why on earth would I then create an image,
when my test was already done? Afrer burning I already knew that
Gnomebaker accepts and converts my 24-bit FLAC files without any kinds
of trouble.

Then I asked a question, for possible future needs, how to burn an
audio CD image from my FLAC files, and it seems like impossible (with
Gnomebaker), since that option is missing for Audio CD mode.

Well, sorry if I'm rude or something (maybe I misunderstood everything
anyway), I don't mean to be, and thanks anyway for taking time to

Kind regards
