Copying Audio CDs

Probably the easiest thing to do to test your setup. If you run the volume management system (i.e vold) make sure you turn it off by running
/etc/init.d/volmgt stop
Place an aduio CD in the internal CD-ROM. We will copy the CD Audio data to disk, so make sure you have at least 650 Megabytes of file space somewhere. Extract the CD-DA data via read_cdda (this little script won't work if you using the csh)
read_cdda -t 2>&1 | grep "^Track" | while read t TRK junk
        TRACK=`echo $TRK | cut -d: -f1`
        read_cdda -v $TRACK $TRACK.cdda
this will leave you with all of the CD tracks as individual files. Now place a blank CD-R media in the recorder and send the files to it:
cdrecord -v -dev=1,6,0 -speed=4 -audio *.cdda
If everything goes well you'll have a copy of the CD, try playing it in an audio CD player.
