Can you play it by using the play button on the CD drive instead of
software, with linux running? With windoze running on the same box?
With a dysfunctional DOS boot floppy in the floppy drive so it's stuck at
"Missing operating system"?

Have you done it since? If you record a different audio CD today using
cdrecord, does it give the same problem?
You mentioned that you copied this CD by playing it on your standalone
CD player and recording a bunch of .wavs. (Or just one big .wav?) Did
you transfer the signal as an analogue signal or via S/PDIF?
If it was a bunch of .wavs as opposed to one big one, what happens
when you reorder them and burn a CD with a different first track?
