I haven't tested it but just from this short text you seem to be doing
it wrong.

>From memory you should add the debs to the normal repository structure
on the CD under non-free and in the Release file specify that the CD
carries main and non-free. Iirc you also need to list non-free in the DI
info file but I'm not sure. Last time I did this was by hand and when
lenny was frozen.

DI then sees that you have both main and non-free on the CD and reads
main/binary-arch/Packages and non-free/binary-arch/Packages and sees all
the firmware debs (same for udebs).
