I think an audio CD player only reads the first-burned session of a disc.
Hence, 'Audio' format must always be in Session 1, and subsequent audio
sessions would not be read - though I would guess they would mount on the
desktop and be extractable at least......?

Also, as far as I know, there is no way to fool the program into burning
tracks with ID offsets - this would probably not help anyway, as the
Session would still be read as the first (and only useable) one by an audio
CD player

Unless you 'closed' the disc with 'Write Disc' you should at least be able
to use the rest of your 2 min CDRs for data storage anyway.
