You can 'browse' to it because the system 'sees' the entire device and
will read/write to it from the folder.

Correct.  Wine does not support, yet, raw device access which is what
ImgBurn needs.  BTW, is there some reason that you cannot use the Disk
Utilities to create your disks?  One nice feature is that your burnt
disks will be readable by both Windows and UNIX systems (to include
Linux systems.)
