Roxio is pretty broken.  Nero at least knows that there might be other file
systems on the planet.  I just use cdrecord from the command line and I
very rarely make any coasters.  I keep a cheat-sheet for the command line
options so I dont' have to trust my faulty memory.  (If anybody has extra
brain-DIMMS that they aren't using, I could use an upgrade......)

The problem may only be getting the disk image out of the compressed
non-zlib file.  Maybe somebody here can uncompress it for you under OS X
(I'd do it for you, but none of my Mac boxen are running OS X of any
flavour) and send it back?  Might be worth asking.
