Can't mount CD-RW-disks

I've just written some files to a CD-RW-disk using cdrecord. When I try to mount the disk, I get this error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0, or too many mounted file systems

I can burn and mount CD-R disks just fine, and (as I wrote) to burn CD-RW-disks is no problem. I've been searching through a lot of forums on the web, but I couldn't find any good answers to this question.

Does anyone have a clue?

Is it possible that the CD didn't burn properly? Does the CD read fine in a different computer/OS?

I'm not sure if this is possible (I'm having trouble getting my USB CDRW working), but could the disk be in some other format than iso9660 or could your fstab entry for that drive have the wrong fs type?
