I think, this has nothing to do in this case with a sound card.
If you burn a wav file on a computer to a CD-Audio disc, you do not need 
a sound card, you only need a CD burner.
But, a WAV-file with 48 kHz sampling rate is incorrect for a CD-Audio.
However, the "burning-software"  needs to re-sample this WAV to 44100 
Hz, for the required CD specification, while there were obvious 


Perhaps it would be better for the future, to create original planned CD 
audio with the correct 44.1kHz sampling to avoid "translation problems".
