cdrecord problems

Hi,
got two problems with cdrecord on fc2 and noone seems to have
mentioned them here or in bugzilla so I'm wondering what's wrong ...

Firstly,
if I write a 9 second blank wave file twice onto a blank CD with
the following command:

# cdrecord -eject -v dev=/dev/cdrom -speed=4 -pad -audio -tao blank9.wav
blank9.wav

What I get is a 9 second blank track followed but a 9 second 'almost'
blank track
The problem is that there is a very loud click at the end of the last
track (and there always is not matter what is in the wave file)
Maybe the fixating code has a bug?

Config info:
CPU: AthlonXP 2400+ (2.0Ghz)
kernel = 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 (i686)
cdrecord-2.01-0.a27.4.FC2.1  AND  cdrecord-2.01.1-0.FC2.1
motherboard = ASRock K7S41GX
# cat /proc/ide/hdc/model
SAMSUNG CD-R/RW DRIVE SW-252F
# ls -o /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root 8 Oct 20 16:37 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc

In case anyone thinks the file isn't blank - here an 'od' of it:

# od -c blank9.wav
0000000   R   I   F   F 264   9 030  \0   W   A   V   E   f   m   t
0000020 020  \0  \0  \0 001  \0 002  \0   D 254  \0  \0 020 261 002  \0
0000040 004  \0 020  \0   d   a   t   a 220   9 030  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0
0000060  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0  \0

Secondly,
if I write a CD with a second computer that is an Athlon64 then
the CD is just full or noise not the original audio
(same command as above with one or more wave files)
The writer was in the other PC for a long time and didn't have
this problem until if moved to the newer PC

Config info:
CPU: Athlon64 3000+ (2.0Ghz)
kernel = 2.6.7-1.494.2.2 (i686)
cdrecord-2.01-0.a27.4.FC2.1  AND  cdrecord-2.01.1-0.FC2.1
motherboard = ASUS K8V SE Deluxe
# cat /proc/ide/hdd/model
PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-106D

-Thanks for any help
