when CD buring the "keep session open" option really only allows you to 
continue to add data to the CD not change existing data. For example you have 
a 700mb CD-R but you only write 200mb to it. Closing the session ends the CD, 
thats it, over. Keeping the session open will allow you to keep writing to the 
CD until it is full.

the only way to manipulate and change files already on a burned CD is for it 
to be a CD-RW.

But on the other hand it would be very simple to add "modules" to an ISO image 
and re-burn it. Especially when a CD-R is like 20 cents these days.
