right, /etc/fstab is irrelevant because blank CDs are not mounted at all.

I burn audio CDs from FLAC files with the following script which should 
be run in the directory with the source files.

    for i in ./*.flac; do flac -d $i -o ${i//flac/wav}; sox \
    ${i//flac/wav} ${i//flac/cdr}; done

    cdrecord -v speed=10 dev=/dev/hdc driveropts=burnfree -dao -pad
    -overburn -audio ./*.cdr

You can then delete the interim wav files, the cdr files (both of which 
tend to be quite large)  and [optionally] the flac files.

P.S.  The script fails if the source files have spaces in their name as 
many music files tend to have.  Use EasyTAG to correct this.
