Man cdrecord says that you are correct.  I never build audio disks on
linux, and as such I have always seen and used the -data parameter with
the data filename following it.

Chris, is this a true SCSI cd/dvd drive?  If not, on kernel 2.6.x I have
success with "cdrecord dev=ATAPI:0,0,0"

what does "cdrecord dev=help" produce?
