Most CD-burners won't re-read the CD's table-of-contents after  
burning an image, until you eject the device.  However, you might be  
able to use atacontrol to nudge the drive hard enough to take another  

Arguably this is a bug with the CD-ROM firmware, but it's common  
enough to not be surprising.
