The problem with software that makes a CD "look like" a USB flash drive is that people end up expecting it to be able to do the same things that a USB flash drive can - when in fact the base technology is completely different and doesn't support the same operations.

Not quite true.

If Win 7 user uses "Live File System" then CD will work like a USB stick.

Look at screen shot from JulesJ "Like a USB flash drive" option.

"Be able to add and erase one file or many files over and over (like you can with a USB flash drive) and use the disc in a Windows 7 computer."

As I described in my post, you can "logically" delete a file, but on a CD-R you can't physically delete the file and therefore the space can't be recovered.   Unlike a USB flash drive, repeated deletes to a CD-R will make your drive smaller and smaller.
