creating subdirectory using MS-DOS

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 2.399 GHz / 758 MB
I am taking a course on Windows commands. One of the homework assignments is to create a subdirectory on a CD.

I can create a subdirectory on my hard drive without any problems. However, I run into problems when trying to create a subdirectory on a CD. I know that the CD is blank. I even changed to the CD directory on the command line. But no matter what I do I still get the message invalid function when I try MD and the name of the directory. What am I doing wrong?

Create the dir on your hard drive......stuff....then go into
stuff and create the sub dir.

md stuff
cd stuff
md mysub

Then burn the dirs to the cd

Hope that makes some sense.......

Yeah you gotta burn the data to a cd. .

There is software like Nero's InCD that treats a writable cd as a drive:

I've never used it but even if something like InCD is running in the background in a windows session, I doubt that dos commands run from command prompt will work. But I guess if you have InCD or similar software you can try it.
