I've been playing around with mode2cdmaker and discovered that it does 
sometimes make images that mplayer doesn't like. I'm not sure whether 
you can call them "invalid," since there isn't a standard for what it's 
doing, but things definitely break.

Through trial and error, I think I've discovered that problems arise 
when too little data is put into the ISO9660 filesystem on the CD. When 
I put less than 1MB or two, mplayer doesn' like it, though mode2cdmaker 
doesn't complain. So, the workaround may be to just put a filler file of 
a few MBs.
