After burning an image file to CD , no files show in the CD content of the CD-Rom drive, except a Notepad file called " desktop" .Nothing else! Where is the rest of the files supposedly burned? This happens with a Rosetta Stone language program, no matter which burning software I use ( Imgburn, Daemon tools, etc.).

Also, when I mount a drive, it cannot contain more than one IMG file at a time, so I have to use multiple Virtual drives, which is visually confusing. How can I mount a batch of Img files in the same virtual drive?

First I have NEVER heard of mounting multiple image drives to a single virtual drive. Second it sounds like the images you are trying to burn are not actually disk images. – Ramhound Feb 13 '13 at 15:49
    
It definitely seems like you lack some understanding on how ISO's work and what you can/can't do with them. pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ht/burnisofile.htm & en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_image – Enigma Feb 13 '13 at 16:09
    
THe ISO image is off the Rosetta Stone program. It is not corrupted because it works with a virtual drive. – Ittiandro Feb 13 '13 at 20:01

Okay, first off, think of Virtual Drives as a single DVD drive. They can only hold one DVD at a time just as a Physical Drive can

Second, whatever you are using to burn the image is failing unless the .IMG (or .ISO) file itself is bad. There's really not a whole lot to it other than that. It sounds like windows disc burning utility is being used here so I would recommend 'Ashampoo Burning Studio 6 Free' (google it) as it never fails on me instead of the default windows burner.

It could also be a bad CD in the RW category. – Enigma Feb 13 '13 at 16:10
    
A point well made, I hadn't thought about that, I just assumed the OP was using different DVD-R's. (I say DVD-R because I believe Rosetta Stone is much too large to fit on a single CD) – Alastor Feb 13 '13 at 18:13
