Have not been able to get a definitive answer on this. Using cdrecord or cdrdao on a linux box is it possible to write 4 different audio CDs at the same time.

System is a P4 2.4 800fsb The drives are all on 2 IDE Channels.

Edit: To clarify the audio CDs are all different so its not a 1 image to 4 Duplication kinda deal.

Theoretically yes. Practically probably not.

You can certainly run 4 cdrecord processes at once but the likelyhood that you will get buffer underrun is quite high.

To get an even more definitive answer I'd just try to do it.
