We all have our moments.  :-)

The one thing i can't get past when reading your emails is: WHY?  Why
would you want to do this?  K3B has a perfectly good MP3-to-CD-audio
converter.  I've never encountered anything that K3B couldn't burn that
wasn't my fault.  If K3B and the Gnome equivalents are not working,
there is very likely something wrong with your CD drive or media.

If you don't have any joy working out what's wrong with the native CD
burners, another option might be Audacity, although i'm guessing that
what you meant above was that you would prefer NOT to do it with a GUI.
 Another command-line option would be mpg321:
	mpg321 --wav file.wav file.mp3
