Make sure you set the software to write a basic ISO-9660 image. It seems
to me that Adaptec's software defaults to using Microsoft's Joliet format
(to support long filenames). ISO-9660 is the defined
lowest-common-denominator standard that should be readable by anything
with a CD-ROM.

Our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness, too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
Those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves
