No, these CDs are meant for playing on the computer. They come with a program 
that plays the vob, and the autorun.inf file that starts this program. I don't 
know why the CD has to fake the DVD directory structure. Windows has no problem 
distinguishing this from a real DVD. An ISO image will be provided for download 
on request (warning, copyrighted material--please delete the iso and erase the 
CD-RW after reproducing the bug).
