Okay. You can see that it was recorded in some "non-standard" way.
"Warning: controller returns wrong size for CD capabilities page."
However, it should not hurt. This shows that there are only two
tracks of data. The rest has never been recorded. Therefore, you
have an ISO9660 image that doesn't fill the whole CD. This seems

You, therefore, can't get a binary image of the whole CD because
only the first two tracks has been written. A CD isn't "formatted"
like a hard-disk. An unwritten CD doesn't contain anything that
will even synchronize read electronics.

This CD should mount normally under Linux and have no missing or
unreadable files. However, you can't expect to raw-read 700 Mb
of data from the physical media.

I was going to compile a list of innovations that could be
attributed to Microsoft. Once I realized that Ctrl-Alt-Del
was handled in the BIOS, I found that there aren't any.
