    Does anyone know how I can burn 800MB CDs? I'm using an iBook G4 800 with the a Matsu****a CW-8123 combo drive, running OSX 10.3.1. So far I've tries Roxio Toast 6.0.3, NTI Dragon Burn 3.0 and Missing Media Burner, but to no avail. Toast and Dragon Burn only recognise the blank CD as having 96 MBs free and MMB was just not happening.

    thanks

    Where are you buying 800 MB CD's from? I thought 700 MB/80 Minutes was the normal maximum.

    Buying CDs

    I bought TDK 800MB CDs from my local computer dealer, but they are not recognised by my combo drive, so beware

    there's a overburn "patch" floating around... i picked it up off someone in IRC, he said it worked for him, but i never got it to work with my G4's cd-rw. If i still have it, i can send it to you

    it worked fine with my mom's cd-rw using NERO w/ overburn

    That would be great, let me know if you find it and I'll send a PM with my address

    thanks
