Will this work with audio? (the dd'ing, that is...)

Hm, interesting.

I'd never tried, since I always use cdparanoia to rip music. When I try I
just get io errors ({DriveReady SeekComplete}.

So the answer *looks like* it's no, but I can't for the life of me think
why

Yeah, I even went and tried it myself... don't work (errors like above)... no
big deal, though it *would've* been kind of neat...

If someone can explain *why* it fails, I'd love to hear about it... The way I
understand 'dd' it doesn't care *what* it's handling it just reads/ writes
blocks/bytes from here to there...

Wow... that's almost lyrical:

"Don't you see?
d - d, just
reads 'n writes
blocks or bytes
from here to there
without a care"

... ;P

ANYWAYs I just tried dd'ing a cd to an image file... It's F*cking FAST! (?)
500+ MB in ...dunno 10 secs... What's the word on r/w errors? is this at all
a reliable MO?

Jon
