You mean it is not CD-DA (compact disk digital audio)? I had a Microsoft CD containing the music from The Rite of Spring and a lot of sort of games based on the score. Two of the tracks did not contain audio but only data that a CD player would never know what to do with. But my machine could understand the disc perfectly well, though it was Windows it was running. However, only a specia program, coming within the CD knew how to use that disc, and play the games, see the several pictures, read a lot of information et cetera.

I think your CD is just the same. The CD contains software to let you see the score and hear the music at the same time. But the software will only run on a predetermined operating system.
