Just a thought...

Is it the iocharset option for the iso9660 filesystem that you need
(when you read the CD's)?

Just to clarify...you have the filenames on an ext3 and the charset has
already been garbled?  Or is it a problem with your locale setting that
won't properly display the characters?

(Still new to all these locale settings, so I apologize if these are
 stupid questions.)
