    I found this, http://www.monkeysaudio.com/ - Monkey audio APE

    http://www.monkeysaudio.com/download.html it decompresses it so this should help.

    Ape files are usually complete albums, ripped as a single file to wav format then compressed to ape format.

    When you uncompress them you get the single wav file back, but the cue file has information about the track names/splits.

    Load the cue file into nero and you can create the album with the original track index.

    The Winamp plugin should allow you to see/play the individual tracks without burning the cd.

    I think you have to load the cue file, not the wav.

    Bah either way... Thanks for the help I gave up trying to figure it out and just slowly searched for each individual track. Thanks though, glad to know I can find help here when I need it.

    Yepp you are correct. Ape is a lossless format.

    A more widely used lossless music format is flac. Ape works exactly the same way. Check out monkeysaudio.com for all the things you need to know

    It's a great format. You can even get plugins to play it directly in foobar and winamp from that site
