This picks up the CD writing program thread.
 
I tried saving the two examples onto a disc. one following the other.
 
It turned out that, once written in Roxio 5, even if not finalized at all, that Magix Audio Cleaning Lab 3.1 couldn't write to the same disc.  This may be proprietary, it may be they use different methods (my suspicion.)
 
I remember the early days of digital at the AES when certain people reappeared regularly to tell us that "bits is bits."  Then jitter, least significan bit and other digital ills were discovered, analyzed, understood and measuring equipment designed to quantify variations.  I suspect the same will prove the pattern with CD writing programs as well.
