because the data on an audio cd uses 2.3K blocks instead of 2K blocks.
Or maybe you could if the driver was clever enough, but it doesn't work
Then you need to put them back together again. cdrecord will do this, or
any decent gui thing will do it. Your biggest issue is to record the
disc in DAO mode. That way it will write the whole disk, and you should
be able to set the gaps between tracks. If you write in TAO mode, it'll
write track by track, with a gap between them.
If you have acccess to windows, I love nero. On linux, K3B is as close
as it gets.
