Two things that you may know . . . but you may not.

1. The type is iso9660.  I would guess that is a typo above, but who knows?

2. You can't mount blank media.  (You can't mount any filesystem that
doesn't exist!).  You have to write to blank CDR(W)s with special software
that knows how to talk to CDR(W) drives.  cdrecord(1) is the most common.

Good luck!
