Please see a quote from http://syslinux.zytor.com/iso.php:  

  Note that ISOLINUX only uses the "plain" ISO 9660 filenames, i.e. it does not
  support Rock Ridge or Joliet filenames. It can still be used on a disk which
  uses Rock Ridge and/or Joliet extensions, of course. Under Linux, you can
  verify the plain filenames by mounting with the "-o norock,nojoliet" option
  to the mount command. Note, however, that ISOLINUX does support "long" (level
  2) ISO 9660 plain filenames, so if compatibility with short-names-only
  operating systems like MS-DOS is not an issue, you can use the "-l" or
  "-iso-level 2" option to mkisofs to generate long (up to 31 characters) plain
  filenames.

  ISOLINUX does not support discontiguous files, interleaved mode, or logical
  block and sector sizes other than 2048. This should normally not be a
  problem.


I think this explains your problems.
