If you read a little more carefully, you'll see that those posts
aren't talking about quite the same things.  In fact, they're both
correct; you can't copy an audio cd by dd'ing the whole disk, but you
can do that for a data disk.  For audio disks, you either need another
program that understands audio cd format, or (with ATAPI cd drives
only, I believe) you can use the acd<x>t<y> format, on a
track-by-track basis.
