I just encoded a CD to FLAC with the help of EAC (Exact Audio Copy) and I was wondering if the cue sheet can be used for the .wav file only or for the .flac file to? The CD is encoded into a single FLAC file; an full image of the CD. My goal is to only save the FLAC image, cue sheet and .log file for backup purposes.

EAC would likely have produced the CUE sheet for the FLAC file only. However, if you edit the CUE sheet in a text editor (e.g. Notepad) and change the file name near the top from filename.flac to filename.wav, you can save it as a second CUE sheet which will work with the WAV file.
