PQ codes are basically start and stop markers for the CD player to read in order to know where each track begins and (not always necessary) ends.

So PQ codes would be added to the start and end of each of your tracks using a piece of software like Wavelab or Pyramix in order for you to make a PMCD or DDP. Even the basic burning software creates these ie, Nero or Toast but with less control than the two programs I've mentioned.

I'm sure someone will come in and elaborate, but PQ codes are fairly simple and easy to achieve with the right bit of kit.
