When you open the Command Prompt and run your search like

Cd E:\


right-Click anywhere in the black space and select Mark the cursor will change to a blinking block. Press Crtl+A Select All and press enter

Its copy to your clipboard and you just paste it to your document and format it

Expanding on coxchris idea,

You could execute the following command at the root of the CD .
dir /b /s > C:\filelist.txt

This will create a text file named filelist in the root of your C: drive, it will contain a full path listing of all your files on the CD, in all directories without listing the individual directories and all that size stuff. Then you can insert the text file into Word.

Hope this helps
