there's one important detail that isn't clear from your description:
a) You can't read the CD at all
b) You can read the CD, you can see the directory, but the files seem to contain garbage
I'm asking because the Apple OS's may use a totally different CD file system (not the standard ISO-9660), which isn't supported by other systems. In that case, situation a) would apply, and the most obvious solution would be to write this CD again on OS-X, but his time using the ISO-9660 file system.
If szenario b) applies, there may be a problem with the end-of-line characters - Apple OS's historically tend to use CR (ASCII 13), while Linux uses LF (ASCII 10). Just for completeness: Windows uses CR+LF (ASCII 13, 10).
Most editors, however, can handle all the three variants.
