To mount a .cue with Daemon follow these steps:

Right click on the Daemon tools icon in the task tray (Near to clock)
Select Virtual CD/DVD-ROM
Select Device 0 :[u] no media (May be slightly different)
Move pointer to Mount Image and left click
Browse to .cue file
Select the .cue and click on open

Finally goto MyComputer and the CD will be mounted there or if the .cue image has autorun it should automatically startup.

Indeed that will happen.  It would be the same if you made a VCD or SVCD.  What you need after the CD is created is to load up your DVD play software, with appropriate Codecs and click on the play disk or play movie option and then point it to the drive that the image is mounted to.


I will use PowerDVD as an example:

Insert the VCD/SVCD/KVCD and start PowerDVD. Click Play  
Be sure that the source is correct. If not, click Select Source  and choose the correct CD drive. (The drive that you mounted the image to)

All being well the CD should play without any problem.  If not there is a problem with your encoded CD

You could try using 90min CDR they have about 50mb extra on the CD's

TBH, the time you have spent messing around recompressing etc, you may as well buy a DVD burner.  They are around £70
