    Howdy all!

    I'm a total newb to cdrdao, but here's what is happening to me.

    My .toc file seems to be in order - (no errors when I
    'cdrdao show-toc table.toc').

    And my simulation burn "finished successfully" -
    ('cdrdao simulate table.toc')

    However, I get the following error when do it for

    $ cdrdao write table.toc

    Any ideas anyone?  I googled around a bit, but to no avail.

    Thanks for reading!

      ulp... I got it.

      I was using the 'generic-mmc' driver. 

      I got it to work with the 'generic-mmc-raw'.

      Cool!  I got the secret track to work!!
      Thanks for such a high-class piece of software!
