Hello,
I am new to this forum.
Recently I have purchased 800 MB CD's. I have LG CD Writer.
I was not able to burn a 800 MB CD using Nero 6.3.
I experimented with most of the options but the last limit of MB that I can write is 703 MB.
I also tried the latest patches from Nero.
Do anybody know how to burn the same?
Any other free software available for the same?

Try it.

An 800 MB (90 minute) disc is a nonstandard length. Any disc over 700 MB (80 minutes) must use Nero overburn settings to allow it to be burned. Use the following settings:

1. Don't use the Nero Wizard. It will not allow overburning as it defaults to Track-At-Once. If it is active, close it.

2. Multisession | No Multisession must be checked

3. ISO | Check Mode 1 and Joliet

4. Burn | Check Write and Finalize CD (No further writing possible). Write method must be Disk-At-Once.

5. In the main menu, File | Preferences | Expert Settings check "Enable overburn disk-at-once burning". If you are using a 800 MB data disc, you can set the Maximum CD length to 90 minutes 0 seconds 0 frm. Hit Apply, then OK. If you are using a 650 or 700 MB data disc, use the overburn capacity test in Nero CD Speed to estimate the maximum overburn capacity.

6. The Red and Yellow marker settings in File | Preferences | General Settings have no effect on burning or overburning. They are there just as a visual aid.

These settings should allow you to attempt an overburn if your recorder and the media support it.

Try it .

The overburning capacity of 700 mb cd's depend upon the brand.. Some support upto 733mb. This can be tested using nero cd speed....

Yeah there is always a risk of damaging the writer.

^ i lost my Samsung CD writer by always burning a 800 MB disc in overburn mode. so i've stopped it and opted for DVD long ago.
