Hi Janina.
I have tried the following lines in my script which have worked in the 
past with 2.6 kernels:

cdrecord -eject speed=2 dev=/dev/hdc -audio 01.cdr 02.cdr

I have also tried substituting
for the /dev/hdc part. both seem to start up but then I get the
and after a while a bunch of out-of-memory errors.
I'm not sure why a memory leak would affect my computer and not yours, but 
that's no great surprise since I don't know that much about memory leaks 
in the first please. There was a mention in linuxtoday of such a memory 
leak and that it should generate a linux- but it didn't. I think my 
best next diagnostic move would be to try another 2.6 kernel and see if 
the problem goes away.
