Well, you've certainly confused me - but I'll admit that I don't do this
often enough to know much more than the process. I have a bunch of wave
files and use k3b to create an audio cd (New Audio CD Project), it plays
in my CD player from the 1980's. So, unless the OP has an 8 Track CD
Player :-) it probably will work. Doesn't k3b just take the wav's and
write them to a cdda format anyway?
