You can tell the disc is not a homemade mix CD by the printing on the top of the CD the first time it is placed in the tray.

The Caller picture

Plot hole: The very last scene shows Mary building a wall, apparently in her belfry. But there should still be the original wall that Rose built, with the hole in it that Mary smashed in. By killing Rose / having killed Rose, she prevents further harm, but all effects that took place before that (also the building of the wall), should stay (like her scars).It is very unlikely Mary broke down the whole wall just to add another body.
