   A 700 mb CDr has two sizes. 80 minutes, and 700mb.  Only time 
minutes is important is audio images. I often burn way over 800 
mb's of wav's to a CDr, but the time needs to be just under 80 
minutes of playing time to make the CDr stable on cheap junk CD 
players. Movies OTOH don't go by minutes, they need to fit 'data 
wise' in MB's on a CDr. Guess I'll just keep re-encoding the 'too 
big' ones ;)
