6 Burning


If you are willing to burn or already burned a CD from a CUE sheet produced by this program and all audio tracks became only senseless static noise, you may need to ask your burning software to swap the byte order of all samples sent to the CD-recorder when writing audio tracks. For instance, that can be accomplished with the --swap option when using the cdrdao program. Be warned that at least for mixed-mode discs, by author’s own experience, the rule is to use that option; if you fail to specify it when burning, you almost certainly will pointless waste your CD.

Supposing you want to burn a CD using the cdrdao program and a CUE sheet file named gnu.cue, and wisely want to ensure the correct behavior of your burnt disc, use the command:

cdrdao write --swap --speed 1 --eject gnu.cue

That way cdrdao will swap the byte order of audio samples, cautiously burning in the smallest possible speed and will eject your CD when it is done.
