Let's skip to my fix. I use other CD recording apps. Just the ones over at Ninite.com which are CDBURNERXP (don't let the XP in the title fool you as it's good for XP to Windows 10. and IMGBURN.
I have AShampoo for cd burning. the owner is German and there is distinctly a problem with communication or she is not very adept. When I burn an Audio file I am asked if I want to simultaneously create an image. I am then asked if I want to do so with the AShampoo version of a file or a CUE/BIN file. If I choose the latter when I try to bring it up later I get an error. The owner tells me there is some issue with "these are not for Audio files!!??" How does a human use a CUE file and why would it be an offering???
Also: when I click directly on the "ASHDISC" file it is not associated with any program and WILL NOT associate. You have to open the program and bring it in. I can't get any sensible responses from the programmers.
