You'll have to find a way to change the file format from FLAC to Red Book, and then burn.

There's no reason this shouldn't be very simple to do with the right software.

How about Roxio Toast ? I use it on my Mac, and it's sold for Windows also. I can just tell Toast I want to burn a music CD. Then I just drag the files into the burner window, and Toast handles whatever conversion is required, automatically.

Edit: a little searching tells me I was wrong, there is no Toast for Windows. Sorry ! But there are possibilities. Nero, Wondershare, Aimersoft DVD Creator were all mentioned. Possibly these are more video-oriented. But there is bound to be something simple available.

k...lets start from the beginning here. what is the original format? if flac files already on 'puter just use something like poweriso to burn flac to disk. no need to convert back and forth. just make sure the player supports flac.

if ripping from disk just rip as a .wav

Why not just use Windows Media Player - it is likely already loaded on the computer ????

Exact copy is free and works perfectly. Have used it with xp, 7 and 10. Do not pay for any other program, you're wasting your money.

Does WMP recognize flac files?

Are you trying to burn a CD that will play anywhere, or one that will play in a player that can read flac files? The discs are formatted differently.

No conversion necessary "exact audio copy".

wmp by default does not recognize flac but a quick codec install solves that issue

Because Flac is not lossless and better than MP3

I might have missed something but FLAC means Free Lossless Audio CODEC. Please advice.

Anyway, I rip CDs with EAC too. You can choose to rip discs to WAV or FLAC. You can burn red book audio CDs with the WAV files by EAC. Or, rip the CD to a disc image with EAC or other apps if your end goal is burning red book audio CDs.
