Cdrdao makes this step obsolete with the command:
cdrdao write foo.cue
It burns the .cue .bin files for you, on any modern distro, to your cdwriter.
Usually this should do, but sometimes cdrdao cannot find the device.
To solve this, as root:
Lets say the result is:
0,0,0: IDE-CD, R/RW 8x4x32, 1.5
The command would be then :
cdrdao write –speed 8 –device 0,0,0 foo.cue
Other things you can do with cdrdao:
Copy an audio-cd to harddrive:
cdrdao read-cd foo.cue
this will make a foo.cue file and a data.bin file of the inserted cd in your harddrive.
Oh, and if you wish to blank your cdrw first ?
Sometimes things seem to be too easy
