The likely cause of this is that burn-proof is always invoked by the
recorder when it changes speed. For 32x, the recorder likely starts at 16x,
switches to 24x, and switches again to 32x.

Subject: [Cdrdao-devel] burn proof
Is there any way to have cdrdao notify me when Burn Proof is being used,
or if it was used at the end of the write? or for that matter, is it
possible to look at a written cd-r and discover if burn proof was used
on that disc?
I am trying to figure out if my cd-burner is having problems, the buffer
seems okay, it stays at or close to 100%, and the final quit says it
never went below about 80%. However the cd writer's LED and my hard
drive's LED both stop periodically throughout the write process for a
short period of time and then resume, indicating perhaps, that the drive
is not sending the data to the burner, and the burner is not doing
anything for that period of time. I'm not sure if that means there is a
buffer problem or not. I have DMA enabled using hdparm, but i'm not
completely sure I have the correct settings for the cd drive and the
hard disks. The system is a dual processor 800MHz pentium 3 with 512MB
of ram and plenty of swap. Aside from writing CD-Rs my system is for the
most part idle while I run cdrdao. This was done at a write speed of 32,
i've tried lowering the write speed to 24x and 16x, which both seem to
exhibit the same strange pause.
Is there some way I can get more detailed information from cdrdao about
