While dd *can* be used to copy single-track data CDs, it is better to
use the readcd program (comes with the cdrecord package). For audio
CDs, the cdda2wav program would be a better option.

An audio CD is not like a data CD. It does not have a 'file system'.
It is a collection of data tracks, containing cdda files.
