You don't say if this is a single file. If not, I'd suggest making
a tar archive of the data so you have a single file.

To encrypt the file: gpg --no-use-agent -q --force-mdc --symmetric file

To decrypt the file: gpg --no-use-agent -q --decrypt file.gpg > file

Try this:

cd /tmp
tar cvfz test.tz /test
gpg --no-use-agent -q --force-mdc --symmetric test.tz

Then burn the test.tz.gpg file to cdrom.
