[LAU] CD ROM Problem

Thanks for the input on this guys. Getting nuttier here.

My latest test was to reorder the tracks. Just to recap, I have a 22
track audio CD I'm trying to burn. The tracks are named like this:

01 - Verbruggen - Concerto in D major, RV 95 La Pastorella- Allegro.flac.wav


The total duration of the tracks is 65 minutes. So, should be lots of
room on the disk.

The results I get are consistent: burning stops/crashes at track 09.

I checked the name with emacs and no "odd" chars in the name.

I checked and the file plays fine with aplay.

now, here's the interesting part. I just reordered the tracks with
barsero so that the order is 8,9,10,1,2...22 (skipping 8,9 10 or
course). Now the burn stops with the 2nd track (the original 9).

So, there is definitely something odd about the track.

My next test is to convert the track to mp3 and then back to wav and
see if that makes a difference.

And I thought that computers could make my life simpler!

Oh, what's the deal with cdrkit? I thought brasero used cdrkit and
even though I have it installed it appears to use cdrecord/wodim.
