cdrecord 2.10a27 & K3b

Well I've been burning data CDs easily for quite some time. Now after a while I decided to burn an audio cd. Problem is, everytime I burn it, it stalls on track 4 and the hard disk goes crazy and I pretty much freeze up and I have to reboot and trash another CD.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Memory leaks

I had the same problem with cdrecord on the latest kernel of Fedora (Linux version 2.6.8-1.521). I watched the system monitor, and cdrecord (?) appears to consume as much memory as the total of all tracks (about 510 Mb). After the second CD my 1 Gb machine started to have the same problems you subscribed.
I am not sure whether this is a kernel problem or a cdrecord problem.
Anyone any idea?
