It would have to be written in very basic language! Something like:
(remember that each CD writer gets a different drive letter, at least
in Wintel...)

COPY <drive containing sound files> <CD-writer drive 1>
IF error (this might have to be more specific, and refer to a full disc error)
COPY <same drive> <CD-writer drive 2>

This, of course, doesn't tell the source drive to start where it
left off...I'm not sure exactly how that would be done...
