Thanks for the responses. Based on your input I did find that,
following the handbook,
1. Starting with a known good audio CD
2. Rip via dd if=/dev/acd0t01 ... etc
3. burncd -f /dev/acd0 track01.cdr ... etc
worked just fine.
Thus the MP3 to CDR conversion had to be the cause. I used the
command (tnx Lars Eighner)
mpg123 -sr 44100 filename.mp3 > filename.cdr
and then burncd'd these tracks...worked! I don't know if the
underlying cause is sample rate, or byte-order. But I have a
solution...So...I'm back to getting music together for my daughter's
wedding...I'll solve the final mystery another day :-)
