I made a working CD-R version of this game from my GD dump files. I used bincon in 0WINCEOS.bin and edited IP.BIN for WinCE support. Music track is a shorter version of the GD track because original music wouldn't fit in the disc. The track plays fine when I start the game.

The only problem: in GD, music starts from the point it stopped after you pause the game, but in CD-R the music starts from the beggining of track again. Any idea why it's happening or how to fix it?

Thanks for the help :)

Originally I used music track as track04 (and track01-03 as dummy), but I just tried using track01 as audio and music still plays fine, but it still resets after pause/shop/whatever.

I just made a test disc where I used whole CDDA track (without ripping the end). I ripped a lot of data/sound files, it was just a test disc. Well, music still resets. So it seems problem is not the size of the music track, but something else that I have no idea what is.

Interesting problem, Mr. TheWise. Hmm, my best guess is that it has to do with the different CDDA behaviour between KATANA and WINCE.
FOR GREAT JUSTICE!
