Considering how copying Linux file to essentially a DOS file system on a
CD-ROM, then back to a Linux file system, messes up file permissions, it
might be better to archive up the files you want to copy, and burn the
archive.

I find it really annoying how the default mounting options for CDs,
flash drives, and the like, causes me to end up with executable
permissions on inappropriate files (JPEGs, etc.).
