    Open the .cue with a text editor and make sure that the audio file it points to is really there (same directory, correct format). You can also check if the cue file works by opening it with foobar2000 (audio player supporting cue files).
    If this doesn't help - what burning programs did you try?

    I'm not completely sure but the error message sounds like somthing's configured wrong with soundcard / drivers. Do you have a working soundcard/onboard sound? Try different output modes (Preferences -> Playback -> Output). Do other music files (e.g.) mp3 play back flawlessly wiht foobar2000?

    Now that the .cue sheet is working you could either try other burning software, e.g. Burrrn, Exact Audio Copy or use foobar2000 diskwriter to split (+ decompress if necessary) the image to single .wav files that can used by any burning program. (What format is the image BTW?)

    the image is 1 large mp3 file....120mb....i have the cue file so it can be split into tracks and play as wavs on my car stereo when i burn it as a wav....maybe i have to convert it to wav before burning.....i just never had to do this when i had a cd burner before usually the program converted the mp3 to wav.....by the way thanx for all your help i appreciate it
