I created image convertion tool.
[from img(clonecd) or bin(isobuster etc) to multiple bin(redump.org)]
This tool modifies a gap of each drive.

You need to download the dat file from downloads page in redumporg.

Uploaded to github. https://github.com/saramibreak/Conv2multiBin
Renamed: app name.

        <datfile> <filename> <parsefilename> <write offset(sample)> <drive offse
                <filename>:"game name" tagname written in datfile
                <parsefilename>:img(clonecd) or bin(isobuster)
                <write offset(sample)>:see redump.org.
                <drive offset(sample)>:offset of drive that is created img or bi
n. If not understand, input -1164

Why not to add the merging functions? RedumpOrgToCloneCD (or to BinCue).

Sorry for the necromancy, but I would also like to request the RedumpOrgToCloneCD function. Virtual Clone Drive doesn't accept cue files, but it does accept ccd files.
This function would make it very convenient to play games with multiple tracks.

I'll try to code it. (But I have no time for a while...)

No rush sarami. I'm glad you consider it, thanks.

Hi sarami, any updates on the redump -> CCD option?

Why not use the free edition of alcohol 52%? http://trial.alcohol-soft.com/en/downloadtrial.php (choose the free edition and not trial versions)

IIRC both Daemon Tools and Alcohol needed SPTD to work. SPTD had issues with my burners, that why I moved to Virtual Clone Drive.

Ah, using alcohol 52%, everybody can make converted image easily.
Start 52% -> Mount cue file -> Start image making wizard -> Select virtual drive -> change the image format from mdf to ccd -> Push the start button -> Done

I found RedumpOrgToCloneCD function doesn't need.

SPTD had issues with my burners

After used alcohol 52%, uninstall this. Is this no good?

Or you can use IsoBuster if you accept a whole iso, bin format.
Start exe -> Mount cue file -> extract CD <image> -> Select RAW (*.bin *.iso) -> Done

If I'm not mistaken, Alcohol needs SPTD to work.

Using Isobuster worked to generate a single .bin/.iso file, but is there a way to convert a cue to ccd? VCD accepts ccd but not cue.

It's inconvenient... Anyway, I found this site. http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA026645/CdSoftware.html
And Dr. Hell, he's a creator of PS1 emulator, creates a cue to ccd converter. http://drhell.web.fc2.com/ps1/index.html This is included in xebra[yymmdd].zip (The latest is xebra170325.zip). I haven't tested either.

CUE2CCD from Dr. Hell worked sarami. Thanks!

@ssjkakaroto why do you need this anyway? I wanna know out of curiosity...

I have a few games in "redump format" that I'd like to play, but to do that I need to mount the images. Virtual Clone Drive can mount single track .bin files (without a .cue), but multi-track images need to be in .ccd to work with it.

ssjkakaroto: Have you considered using gBurner Virtual Drive? I have had no issues mounting multi-track discs by using the CUE to mount it.

A console tool would be useful for mass converting the images.

@darksabre76: I mounted this disc using gBurner and this was the result

Are you sure you've mounted the .cue, not the first track .bin?

@Sarami for some reason Conv2multibin is failing on track 3 of a dump I made with DIC. Tracks 1 and 2 work ok.

Console log

The .img file is good, the .dat too and I can find the segment using findcrcs 0.3.

E:\findcrcs-0.3-bin-win64>findcrcs -q "Interstate '76 (World) (Disc 2) (Play CD).img" 22482768 dafad881 a6d30b96bc50389c88235f9aa1bf2a86
430632384 dafad881 a6d30b96bc50389c88235f9aa1bf2a86

I tried using the following offsets:
0 0
760 0
760 30
0 -30
-760 0
790 0

Is this your disc? http://redump.org/disc/2938/
The hash of track 2 isn't same, not track 3.

Yes, it's going to be updated. I've already talked to Jackal.

The correct hash is from what I posted here.

Did you fix the dat of redump.org?

<rom name="Interstate 76 CD2 (Track 02).bin" size="27346704" crc="e624d803" md5="e2ae8553f2ad7c4650c43c2253ae99c2" sha1="9ab1b0b407ea9fbce3d85e722e9c023d45a137e0" />

Yes, you can see the dat here: https://pastebin.com/a0sLbVeg

How about old version of this app?

Same issues with the versions from 2012 and 2014.

Maybe the problem is actually with track 4, but Conv2multiBin is not outputting track 3 before it encounters the issue.

Take a look of this output from findcrcs:

E:\findcrcs-0.3-bin-win64>findcrcs "Interstate '76 (World) (Disc 2) (Play CD).img" 29821008 43f89d66
388986906  43f89d66  57396ad442565debbf8844a2034c44c9
453115152  43f89d66  74028f15fe72f8d6127dbdaf3acc087c

The same CRC is found twice inside that file, but only once it has the correct MD5. Maybe Conv2multiBin doesn't know how to deal with this situation.
