Disk-At-Once Recording of Audio and Data CD-Rs/CD-RWs
Available Drivers

Supports CD structure analysis (command read-toc) for Plextor CD-ROM readers. Pre-gaps and index marks are detected by performing a binary search over the Q sub-channel for each track. This method is fast and gives very exact results on Plextor drives. The driver uses generic SCSI commands (PLAY AUDIO and READ SUB-CHANNEL) so it may work on other models, too, but result and speed is directly correlated to the digital audio extraction capabilities.
This is an alternate driver for CD structure analysis with Plextor drives. It scans the Q sub-channels of a track linearly like the generic-mmc driver but is faster on Plextor drives.
This is a native driver for the Philips CDD2000/CDD2600 drive family. read-toc is implemented like in the plextor driver but it is slow and not very exact due to poor digital audio extraction capabilities of these drives. Anyway, I don't recommend doing CD structure analysis with the CDD2x00 because it stresses the mechanism too much.
This is a driver for SCSI-3/mmc compatible CD-recorders that support session-at-once (cue sheet based) writing. Most of the recent drives should be compatible with this or with the generic-mmc-raw driver described below.
CD-TEXT writing is supported with CD-TEXT capable recorders. read-toc scans linearly the Q sub-channel of each track to retrieve the pre-gap length and index marks. This method is very accurate but takes the same time like digital audio extraction. It should also work with recent CD-ROM readers.
This is an alternate driver for SCSI-3/mmc compatible CD-recorders. It uses the raw writing interface where the driver has to provide the PQ sub-channel data in addition to the audio data. This writing mode allows using part of the lead-out area for audio data since the drive's firmware has no chance to prevent this. Of course, you will get some error message at the end of writing when the CD-R capacity is exhausted.
CD structure analysis is done like in the generic-mmc driver.
Supports writing with the Ricoh MP6200S CD recorder. It cannot write the Catalog Number, yet.
CD structure analysis is done like in the generic-mmc driver.
Driver for the Sony CDU920 recorder. Audio and data tracks are supported. The Sony CDU948 recorder will work with this driver, too. Use option --speed 0 to get the full writing speed.
read-toc uses the Q sub-channel scanning method.
Driver for the Sony CDU948 recorder. It extends the sony-cdu920 driver by CD-TEXT writing and multi session mode.
This is an adapted cdd2600 driver for Taiyo-Yuden recorders. 'read-toc' is done with the plextor method.
Driver for the Teac CD-R55 recorder. Audio and data tracks are supported. read-toc uses the Q sub-channel scanning method.
Driver for the Yamaha CDR10X recorder series that supports audio and data tracks. read-toc uses the Q sub-channel scanning method.
