Linux: Create audio CD from the commane line

Creating CDs nowadays is not as popular as it used to be, but sometimes it is inevitable. For example, your uncle requests a CD to listen while driving. His car is a 15-year old behemoth that hasn’t heard of MP3.

Well, after converting your MP3s to WAVs, for example using mpg321 –wav, use the following command to create an audio CD:

cdrecord -pad -v dev=ATA:1,2,0 -dao speed=0 *.wav

Replace dev with the appropriate device in your system, quite possibly /dev/cdrom.

Enjoy!
