image file for audio cd


I have a list of wav files extracted from audio CDs with 'cdda2wav' command.
I want now to create an image file and to burn it and to get an audio CD. I'm
not sure that 'mkisofs' is the right command... What is the right command then.

I imagine that to burn the resulting image file I have to use 'cdrecord' command.

Thank you.

mkisofs works for me.

for example.....
I have the wav files in a directory such as /home/wav
Change to that directory with the command: cd /home/wav

Make an iso image with the following command while you are in that directory.....
mkisofs -r -o /home/wavfiles.iso .
Note: that period at the end is used basically to say "grab everything from this directory"

Now you can burn the image to a cdrom with the command:
cdrecord -v speed=4 dev=0,0,0 -data /home/wavfiles.iso

Note: the speed and dev settings may be different for your machine.

Thank you, but are you sure that you can read the resulting CD as audio CD in any CD-reader ?

There is in fact much more simple solution : '-audio' option of 'cdrecorder' with the list of wav files for tracks. The problem for me is the description of the tracks and pauses between tracks.
