Glad to hear the modem is working. About the CD:
Many dual CDs are setup that way when they contain both a PC version of software and a Mac version. However, I doubt there are hidden Mac files on the CD. What would be the purpose?
Since you would like to check anyway, do this:
Open the Terminal application on your Mac (Applications, Utilities, Terminal.app)
and type the following and then press enter.
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
Close the Finder and re-launch it. Note that this will turn on hidden files for everything not just the CD you're viewing.
After viewing the CD for hidden files, reverse the command above to get things back to normal:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
Shut the Finder down and re-launch.
