I have noticed that if a CD is burned using "multisession", Macs sometimes cannot read the files, so plug it back into a PC and opt for "finalize CD".

I waited to see if anyone had another idea about this, but since nothing is forthcoming...

I'd bet the problem is with the hardware. Either the Mac's CD drive is getting persnickety, or the CD has a slight flaw. (Or both.)

Macs can typically read disks formatted for PC.
