I have seen some ISOs be 800mb in size. Is it possible to put these on a 700mb disk and work?

isos? probably not. but, if it were a bin file, than possably. bin files are always bigger than iso files for some reason.

if you have an iso file that big, than you possably only have 3 options.

1-get a dvd writer and burn the iso onto a dvd-r.
2-use a cd image mounting program like daemon tools or virtual cd. these programs can trick your computer into thinking that the iso is actually a cd in an "imagianary" cd drive.
3-open the iso up and remove any unimportant files. for example...music files or video files. this takes alot of experiance to do correctly.

i think your best option would be to go with number two, unless you have the money to get the dvd writer. anyways...i hope this helps ya. if you have anymore questions, just ask. :)

With alcohol and blindwrite(cd burning apps) you can fit 800Mb+ on a 700Mb 80min cd-r. The iso should have a.cue or a.bin in there somewhere.

No prob :) It's because they are RAW images, so the data is burned at 2300(I can't remember exactly how much) bytes/sectors instead of 2048 bytes/sectors.
