Cd burning problem -?-

1. Hi recenty borrowed a cd from my friend "data file" well i brought it home burned it striaght off using clone cd 4.0 etc. After burning i tried to install it "FAIL" since when you double click on the cd rom letter the files inside are very small 4 kb 3 kb but the size of the cd was 300mb odd.
2. I then decided to use ISO BUSTER to see what the hell was going on, and there i saw 2 tracks, Track 1 = 1mb , LBA=0!!!! Track 2 = 303.51 ,b LBA=512
3. I cant double click on track2 to access it but iam able to extract it, when i double click i get to options "extract track 2" or "extract from to" i have tried practically every one the latest method i have used is extract from which i then able to save the file as a bin.
4. When i burn the cd i select the bin file (using nero burn) a message then arises asking me to

Chose the "type of image" (i selected raw data)
Settings (Block size, Image header, image trailer)

After i have finished burning the cd the cd is practically blank but there is a a track 01 with a LBA 0 and size of 303mb, But the problem is the track cannot be opened which is a major problem.

Computer- amd athlon xp 1800
ram 512
cd burner: sony 24 speed write - there is no problem with it
ner burn its working properly
windows xp - updated etc etc
all drivers updated etc etc

Media used: cd re-wrtiable and the cd burned from the file was read in the burner and a 52x cd rom.

The cd that has "data file cd (windows program)" has a file system "RAW" and 304 mb,

CAn anyone can able to help me with this problem of burning this cd or sugestions ...

Thank you
