Here's your problem, right here (above). When you view the 
contents of the CDROM after doing the burn you SHOULD NOT
see any ISO files. You SHOULD see a filesystem containing a
number of files and subdirectories.

If all you see is a single file, the ISO file, you've not done
it right. The ISO is an image of a CDROM. YOu need to tell your
CD burning tools to "create cd from image". Exactly how you do 
that depends on which software you are using.
