CD-CD copying problems

Oh, I feel silly now.  What happened was that the cd writer which used
to be scd0 and mounted to /mnt/cdrom2 is now scd1 and mounts to
/mnt/cdrom whilst the cd reader which used to be hdd and mounted to
/mnt/cdrom is now scd0 and mounts to /mnt/cdrom2.  Well, a little
editing of the fstab file and that's fixed.

Now I seem to have the problem that even though it does the copying (and
at 100% buffer as well), the avi file on the copied CD doesn't seem to
like being played in Linux or Windows with xine and Media Player both
crashing (xine crashes about 3 seconds into playing the file), even
though when I copy the same CD in Windows at the same speed (a low 4
speed, the maximum my old CD burner can handle) and using exactly the
same media the copied CD turns out fine.  And I tried this with XCDroast
and Eroaster.  Oh I have no idea what's going on now...Well, I suppose
I'll just have to tell my friends I won't be copying anymore CDs for
them in the near future...
