    As far as I know its 700M. The ISOs you have downloaded has some hidden garbage which will make all writing softwares prevent it to be written on a disc. Use some software like CDRwin http://www.goldenhawk.com to get that image written on a 700M disc

    I had burned upto 775 MB of mp3s on an amkette disc. Well, actually, i overburned it, thae actual capacity was 700 MB but the disc company claims that we can overburn upto 800 mb(90 mins). And it worked!!
    Why dont u try that(if u want to burn the only the .iso file)

    I have seen advertisements of 800mb CDR's - if I am not mistaken these were made by Sprint.

    If they are image files you could resize them to fit 700mb. You could use a software like Photshop to reduce the size a wee bit smaller and it would probably make them around 700mb each.

    Found their ad - they have 800mb CDR's

    email Sprint at sprintcdr@sify.com for availability in your city.

    I think He meant Images of CD not not photos.

    So no use using Photoshop.

    DONT OVERBURN CD'S
    they spoil the lens of ur writer
    even thos 800 mb 90 min cds are so because they need overburning
    once maybe 2ce ... dont make it a habit

    Even recently Moser Baer have introduced 750MB & 800MB CD & CDRW medias. as said by theraven overburning is nothing but digging your oqn pit for your CD writer.

    Hey is this thread turning into a heated Arguement Lol..... :D come on Xenkatesh foget all these stuff and plzz try what the rules tell ya and as Batty told ya plzz take it as a simple Sign of concern to forums rules....in other words just chill for a while......we are all friends here and are not tryin to burn out each other....hey what am i doin now goin outta the topic Lol.....So Btw yes The Cd's are of 700Mb atleast thats what the normal discs are available right now but had heard of some 1 Gb disc not sure.....plus iso image files are randomly compressed dump file images so it rather turns out to be slightly more than the standard disc size...try extracting the files and then try ditributing them in 2 Disc's....that might help mate... :)
