    burncd is ATA-specific and over the years it has been less and
    less able to burn CDs on newer CDR/CDR+W players, particularly
    USB and SATA-connected recorders.  while cdrecord has been kept more
    up-to-date.  Each suffers its own set of issues but cdrecord tends to
    be the better-maintained package.
