I recently got a CUE file containing a whole Audio CD album, but as I wanted to transfer the music to my Ipod I was puzzled how to do..  I could burn a cd and then rip it, but this felt like a de-tour .  A little browsing the net came up with a neat little freeware utility “Medieval CUE Splitter V1.0”, this neat utility split up the CUE to mp3 files in no time. Nice.  But why someone need to create these CUE files in the first place is beyond me.
