I've had problems like this exporting CDs via NFS to solaris.
Sorry the details are murky, but if its the same problem, there's a 
Check the dmesg output: does it complain about an "RRIP field" from the cd9660 
code? From the source, I think it was

"RRIP without PX field?"

The CDs in question were official Sun CDs with Solaris applications (which, of 
course, doesn't mean their properly compliant to a standard, just that it's 
likely others will run into the same problem)

If this is the issue, then mounting it with NFS v2 actually fixed the problem 
for me: I assume the richer operations from v3 were tickling a problem not 
noticed with v2.
