Yes, Nero Burning Rom. But the funny thing is that ALL the CD-RWs that 
I've tested are formatted with that software, with the very same 
version, in the same box (at work). So far, I've found 2 discs that 
cannot be properly mounted (ot of 5). So it's not the software... but 
some combination of factors... I suspect it has to do with FC2 using 
unicode and Windows not using unicode, combined with some "strange" file 
name and/or a bug in the udf module of the kernel.

*The CDs I'm trying work prefect on FC1 and Knoppix 3.3 (kernel 2.4)*

Are you from Brazil? I'm from Argentina, so both of us might be using 
non-english characteres in the filenames, right? (I do)
And if I remember well, the other guy who had problems was French.

But as I said, I couldn't find a pattern yet. It's not something 
"coedpage-exlusive", because all the CDs that I tried have non-english 
characters, and some of them works, and some doesn't.
