say I have a very large FLAC or WAV file, and I want to cut it in a few separate FLAC file. Is there any software to do it? I have Nero 2010 that has a sound editor, but haven't try that yet. Preferably, something like split a FLAC file into smaller files, this kind of software should have some freeware out there for it? anyone?

Did it come with a CUE, M3U, or other kind of playlist file? If so, I think I've used foobar2000 to load the playlist, which would then allow me to skip to separate tracks in that large file. From there, I could then export/convert each track separately.

Edit: Yeah, it's foobar2000. I have a large single WAV file that's a dump from a CD, it included a CUE file that I can drag into foobar to play the individual tracks. I can then select all tracks, right-click and use the Convert option to export each track in whatever formats are supported.

exactly what is the command you use to move each WAV file? as I try the COPY or MOVE cmd., that only move the entire GIANT WAV file, not individual file

I think flacon and CUE Splitter is good. I have used flacon but I also read bout CUE Splitter, it is also the best choice. You can go with any of them.

CUE splitter is really the best. But there is some rare bug. So I have seen 1 or 2 cases that CUE mis-interpret a regular song as 2 songs, and cut in half. So I have to re-burn that file. But overall, I stick w/ CUE splitter

The Convert option appears to split it up. You'll have to select the output format, but it should then output the tracks to individual files. Make sure you set the file naming to something like %title% so it doesn't try to overwrite files. Sorry for taking so long to respond.
