-data because it is not audio - but then you can say pedent
The speed reduction is to try to prevent problems with the burning. My
burner claims to be able to do 24 speed but it just can't write a 2 meg
file at that speed.

-pad does something nice or so the Knoppix FAQ suggests.
If I understand it correctly it matches each block of the iso file with
a corresponding block of the cd and fills any empty space with empty
space rather than writing the next block of data back to back in a
contigious fashion :)
My understanding is that an advantage arises when you try to write a
boot sector and it foobars. It keeps the boot data only to the boot
This as they say is my understanding, however someone more than likely
has a better definition and more will have more technical definitions.
