Cannot access data track on enhanced CD

OS: Windows XP Professional SP2
Internet browser: IE 6.0
CD-ROM: MSI CD-RW MS-8340S(40x12x48x)
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000+
RAM: 1024MB dual channel DDR400
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 Rev.1

I bought an enhanced CD and I can play the cda tracks but do not know how to access the data track. Windows does not see it, but CDex audio CD extractor program does. The CD insert says:
"This enhanced CD contains extra live tracks in MP3 format, and additional information about the band. From your web browser, choose 'Open File' and select index.htm."
I opened IE and selected 'Open' on the File menu, which brought up the 'Open' dialog. First I clicked 'Browse' and navigated to my CD-ROM drive but it showed no HTML files and when I selected 'All Files' in 'Files of type:' it showed only the cda tracks on the CD. Second I typed "index.htm" into the 'Open' input field and clicked 'OK' but it just produced a 'Cannot find server or DNS Error' page.

Could it be that they want you to connect to their website? Otherwise I can't see the reason for html and mp3 (doesn't seem to compute).

It lists the tracks on the album, but does not mention the data track.
