The cdrkit suite is now part of the cygwin distribution.

cdrkit is a suite of programs for recording CDs and DVDs, blanking
CD-RW media, creating ISO filesystem images, extracting audio CD
data, and more.  The programs were originally derived from
several sources, most notably mkisofs, cdda2wav, and cdrecord.

The following packages are available:

cdrkit: README files only.

genisoimage: Create ISO9660/Joliet/HFS filesystem images.
(includes extra tools: dirsplit, geteltorito, mkzftree,
isodebug, isodump, isoinfo, isovfy)

icedax: Extract audio CD (CDDA) data.

wodim: Command line CD/DVD writing tool.

mkisofs: Compatibility symlink mkisofs -> genisoimage.

cdda2wav: Compatibility symlink cdda2wav -> icedax.

cdrecord: Compatibility symlink cdrecord -> wodim.
