    lol... you can burn iso's that are slightly bigger that 700mb i think up to 710mb just set the burner to overburn

    I second that. Did you *make* this ISO image, or did you download it somewhere? If it's significantly more than 700MB, either they made it wrong or it's meant to be a DVD ISO image.

    You may try MagicISO to reassemble this iso. It may reduce size. however it is a good iso burner.
