    Default Burning for Sega CD on Linux

    I ran into a few troubles burning the common bin/cue dumps. Here's how to solve each.

    1. The data bin contains the ecc data.

    It's apparently nonstandard and cdrecord can't ignore it. Look in the cue file which tracks are data (mode1), and run bin2iso on them:
    https://gist.github.com/ceritium/139577

    Then edit the filenames to your converted ones, and the MODE1/2352 to MODE1/2048.

    Some discs are said to have copy protection data in the ecc part, but google says most Sega CD releases did not do that.

    2. My burner's firmware was buggy for cue.

    The burn was interrupted with a drive error after the first track. Solution: use the raw96r mode instead of dao.

    3. Audio was static

    Another non-standard cue thing, the audio bins needed byte swapping.
    Code:
    for i in *bin; do dd if="$i" of=2 conv=swab; mv 2 "$i"; done
    There was no cdrecord switch to skip the automatic swab when using cue, so this command edits the files themselves. Note that your data files must not end in .bin at this point, or they will be corrupted.

    ------

    Code:
    cdrecord -eject -v speed=4 driveropts=burnfree -raw96r cuefile=my.cue

    Linux still can't burn bin/cue as of 2020?

    It can, but the Sega CD dumps are nonstandard in more than one way, it appears.
