Thanks to Luis and Rodney.
I went to the Cdrecord FAQ website
(http://cdrecord.berlios.de/old/private/man/cdr_readme.html) and found this:
Cdrecord currently only supports Track at once. (For audio files.)
If I use track at once
$ cdrecord -eject -v -tao speed=16 -pad -audio dev=ATA:1,0,0 *.wav
I get a playable audio disc.
If I use disk at once
$ cdrecord -eject -v -dao speed=16 -pad -audio dev=ATA:1,0,0 *.wav
I get a disc not recognised by audio equipment.
This is also true of X-CD-Roast. You must choose "Track-At-Once (TAO)"
and not the default "Disk-At-Once (DAO)". This must be how I encountered
the problem in the first place - I just accepted the default.
In my original post, I indicated that -tao did not work when I now know
that it should do. I think I confused myself because writing in simulate
mode (-dummy) produces an error.
Also unexplained is that Rodney seems to have made a successful
recording using -dao. Perhaps its something to do with the -useinfo switch?
