You need to use fixate:
 fixate        Fixate the medium so that the TOC is generated and the
                   media can be used in an ordinary CD drive.  The driver
                   defaults to creating singlesession media (see -m
                   option). Ignored in DAO mode (see -d option).

burncd -ef /dev/acd0 data /home/user/cd.iso fixate

Sorry, I forgot to mention that. I used fixate too.

Is the iso really 364KB? That's awfully small for an iso. Maybe there's something wrong with the image? I would think that 7.0 Current Disk 2 would be much larger....like 654MB.
