I vaguely remember seeing womewhere that subcodes aren't used in DVDs at
all so it's possible that the hardware (DVD ROM) supports the minimum
possible subset for CD compatability.
You should try the original CD in the CD Recorder, use read-cd and make an
image of it and then swap to a blank CDRW and write from the image. See
if that works. Also check to see if there is a firmware upgrade for your
cdrw. I think it's actually a Phillips CDD 3610 OEM'ed to a Cyberdrive
CDRW 602 (or at least that's what google tells me) which cdrdao recommends
using as generic-mmc-raw.

It still uses generic scsi commands, just the way of reading meta-
information (mostly just TOC) differs in the implementation. It should
work but it might be no better or even worse than generic-mmc.
