I would imagine you can also burn them with Roxio though I can't confirm
that for you and Roxio do have lots of different suites so yours may not
have the feature, I do now that it is not an uncommon format or a
cdrdao specific one. If Roxio fails for you, you could try the cdrdao
binaries for windows from cdrdao.sourceforge.net though unfortunately
the windows binaries only seem to be present for an older version.
Finally if all else fails (and you don't need to be running windows on
the machine) you could put some form of linux onto your windows box to
do the burning, you could just put some kind of "poor mans install" of
knoppix/kanotix, basically copying some files into your windows
partition and either booting from cd or you can even add a grub entry to
your windows boot menu (and make sure the kernel and initrd are available).
Pity Damn Small Linux doesn't have cdrdao, or else you could use
damnsmalllinux with toram for a nice simple solution with no installing
(of course if you have 1GB of ram you could also do this with
Knoppix/Kanotix et al).
