- Get Flac, you just need flac.exe, put it in some directory;
- Open the .cue file in Foobar;
- Select all the tracks, right-click, choose 'convert', choose '...';
- Click 'output format', choose FLAC, click 'edit' and set it to 8;
- Click 'destination' and choose your options;
- Click 'processing' and make sure 'enable decode...' is off, and 'active dsps' is empty;
- Click convert, foobar will ask you were you put flac.exe, navigate to it and voila.

You can use the "bit compare" plugin to make sure the new converted tracks are bit identical to the original ones.

NOTE: This works on XP. In Windows 7, they may be problems due to lack of write permissions. Running foobar as admin might fix it, I dunno.

Thanks a lot. Never noticed the option to convert files, and I use foobar for years!
