Copying an Audio CD

Hi, I just got my cd writer (Samsung) and i want to copy some audio cd's. I got a cdrom and a cd writer. Basically i need to copy an audio cd (which is in the cd rom) to an empty cd in the cd writer. Basically i want to make an identical copy of the audio cd. I tried using cdrecord without any luck, any ideas on how to make it with cd record? Or esle any suggestions for other good software please? BTW i am using mandrake 9.1

just a suggestion

You could check out X-CD-Roast. It's free on their website or could be included...that's a GUI and might be easier to figure out.
I can't help with cdrecord, sorry.

I rip the audio CD with cdparanoia, then burn an audio CD with the resulting wav files.

mkdir /snd/newalbum
cd /snd/newalbum
cdparanoia -B "1-" ; eject
cdrecord -v -audio -pad speed=12 dev=0,0,0 *.wav ; eject

# CD burning copying ripping info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:
cdrecord -scanbus
