I have *just now* made a CDRW in CD-DA format using a Ricoh MP6200S.
My iMac recognized it as an audio disc, but a relatively new Discman
player did not; this is not surprising, since the CDRW format is not
optically backward compatible.  (Not reflective enough.)  Presumably
had I burned a CD-R it would have worked perfectly, but I didn't want
to blow a disk just for a test, even if I knew how it would come out. ;-)

The MP6200S is currently attached to a Macintosh so I can use Adaptec Toast;
it worked fine when I had it attached to my NetBSD Pentium, but Toast is
soooo much more flexible than mkisofs/cdrecord...
