You'll first need a file system on the cd
so you could do
     mkfs -t ext2 /dev/cdrom

Notice that it is perfectly feasible to put an ext2 file system
on a cd Of course certain other operating systems will not be
able to read it.

If you prefer to stick to an iso file system, just use the usual tools.
