Remember samba can only do what you can do locally. Did you try cp 
/tmp/image.iso /mnt/cdrw? I would guess that failed also.

IMHO, this is the best solution to your problem (assuming your real 
problem is how to share a CD-RW to windows machines from linux, and not 
restricted to using samba to do it as in your post):


As such , it is actually off-topic for the list, and you might have at 
least tried a search on freshmeat.net
