md5 the same on both CD and iso?

I have two iso files, they both return the same md5 signature as it should be.

Now, I have the CD's (the second is surely not right - it took very fast to get the md5 signature in 10 seconds) and the first one seems okay (very long to get the md5 signature) but its different from the iso.

So, iso filesystem and all, would a CD's md5 signature be same as its iso?

"Depending on hardware and software, a great many people cannot successfully burn and checksum a CD, and have it come out correctly. A great many people cannot copy a CD to an iso file without changing the checksum. But if you work with enough CD's on enough systems, you will run into this problem, and when you do, this page contains the solution."
