there should be an option for cdrecord called 'pregap' and 'defpregap'.
want to use it like the following:
> TO RECORD FROM IMAGE TO CD:
> cdrecord speed=8 fs=4m -useinfo dev=2,0 -audio -nopad audio_*.raw
^ modify that line to:
cdrecord speed=8 fs=4m defpregap=0 -useinfo dev=2,0 -audio -nopad
if you don't have the defpregap and pregap options (check the cdrecord
page), then you probably will want to upgrade your version of cdrecord
you can also use the program 'cdrdao' to burn audio CDs. i don't really
want to delve into DAO vs TAO things ... but search freshmeat.net for
'cdrdao' for more info.
email me back if you'd like more assistance!
