Duplicate Audio CD Using cdrdao

On Alpine (36.46) and Festival (36.37) we can use cdrecord (which fails on Mint (36.53)) to duplicate an audio CD in Disk At Once mode. The SCSI device for the CD-RW is 1,1,0 on Alpine (36.46) and 0,0,0 and Festival (36.37).

First extract the audio from the source CD into individual WAV files:

  # cdda2wav -v255 -D /dev/hdc -B -Owav
Record the individual WAV files to CD:
  # cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=2,0,0 -dao -useinfo *.wav
Using cdrecord to record Track At Once mode (with a resulting 2 second gap between each track)
  # cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,1,0 -pad -audio -dummy *.wav
