Well, I could not read such a cd on my linux system. Yes, I had loaded
the necessary modules, etc. Maybe the programs still need development.
Till, then we have to suffer the cd's sent by people who do not bother
to write things properly.

The common thing that I have seen in a couple of cd-writing programs is
   Open the explorer window
   Right click on the cd-drive (writer)
   Select Eject.
     It generally pops up a window wherein you say yes to the option
     of making the cd readable on "other" systems. As a bonus, we can
     also disable completely fixing the cd, thus making it "rewritable".
