I would think that the image created with dd is a few bytes (less than 
a sector) too small, because dd reads until it runs out of useful data, 
but the cd consists of 2k-sectors, the last one is padded with zeroes 
until it´s full. At least that´s what the "-pad"-option in cdrecord is 

So I´d try `dd if=dev/scd0 of=bla.iso ibs=2048 obs=2048 sync`,
out of `man dd`:
       sync   pad every input block with NULs to ibs-size

Or is there an error in my knowledge?
