Is it just me, or is the .bin just a smidge to big to fit on a CD-R? Anyway around this? Jeremy...

    First off, use bchunk to convert the bin/cue combo to an iso. It may not be too big then. If it is, just enable overburn.

    I've successfully burned about 708M on a 700M disk with my Lite-ON 40/12/48.

    Sarumont,

    I tried bchunk, but it requires a .cue file in addition to the .bin, and I couldn't find one for aa. As for over-burning, it failed twice. Bummer.

    728 stinking Mb. I saw on a Suse forum someone had the same question with the same response (.cue and everything), but they where able to overburn the CD-R.

    grrr. I made two more coasters last night

    Man...that's huge. I've never heard of anyone overburning like that. An alternative would be to get one of those 90 minute CDs (as long as your burner supports them). Beyond that, I'm out of ideas.

    90 minute CDs? I'll have to look into that.

    Thanks,

    Yeah...They used to be quite pricey for CDRs (~$3, IIRC). I'm also not sure if they are made anymore, but you can always try.

    Just make sure to check out the specs on your burner first to make sure that it can handle them.

    would it be possibe to actualy commpress the .bin file? because 728 did seem a little close to me too. couldnt they just go a few more steps and make it a little smaller!
