Well, with data CDs you won't use /dev/acdtxx ;) It's a great special 
feature of ATAng/mkIII; If not before...

Hmm, AFAIK WAV _is_ PCM, both don't have any headers. But I'm out of 
business for details for more than 10 years, so I may be wrong.

But since /dev/acdXtY is designed to provide the raw audio (wav=pcm) bits 
like cdda2wav does, I guess there's something broken since cdda2wav works 
but acdXtY doesn't anymore...
