This seems hard to believe.  Your software does not need to be able to
support looking inside the files... it just needs to be able to write an
ISO file to the CDR as-is.

You do _not_ want to look inside the files until you have burned them onto
the cd.

Do not attempt to extract any files or "create" a cd from files.  There
are two steps in writing a CD... the first one organizes the data into an
"ISO" filesystem image, and the second one puts the resulting image on the
CD.  Some software tries to hide this distinction... but the first step is
already done in this case.  You do not want to repeat it.

Shawn may be able to, but _I_ can't help you with that one.  Read the
documentation on the CDs once you have burned them.
