I have this problem in both Stable (Sarge) and Unstable with kernel
2.6.8-2-386. I have two .wav files (recorded with sound-recorder). I
can burn a CD with cdrecord using either one of the files, and the
result is a playable audio CD.
If I burn a disc using both files, the CD will not play on a software
audio player or on audio hi-fi equipment. The commands I have tried are
cdrecord -eject -v -tao speed=16 -audio -pad dev=ATA:1,0,0 *.wav
cdrecord -eject -v -dao speed=16 -audio -pad dev=ATA:1,0,0 *.wav
cdrecord -eject -v -dao speed=16 -audio -pad dev=/dev/hdc *.wav.
The same problem occurs using XCDRoast and k3b (which both use cdrecord).
Thanks to Rodney for the previous suggestions.
Having tried those unsucessfully, I thought that the problem might lie
with the Debianised version of cdrecord. I compiled the latest Jörg
Schilling version (http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/cdrecord.html)
and had exactly the same problem. If it is a bug, it is also in the
original version so I might try there for enlightenment. The only other
thing I can think of is that it might be a hardware issue.
I would still like to know whether anyone has been able to burn a
multi-track audio CD in Debian recently.
Okay, I burned a few CDs yesterday using k3b and just burned another one
today using your first command:
>> cdrecord -eject -v -tao speed=16 -audio -pad dev=ATA:1,0,0 *.wav
Both worked fine and I can play the CDs in regular stereos.
In fact I was having problems recording CDs, but I found out it was the
CD burner that went bad... (Just bought a DVD burner for US$50.00.) :-O
Maybe you also have hardware problems... (I did have different
symptoms though.) Maybe try to use Knoppix and see if you can burn a CD
using it (you might need two drives) or try "that other (evil) OS".
