    Audio CDs originally came in 650 mb, then later 700 mb.

    When the CDs are burned, the disk is "finalized" and it will say no space is available since the CD has been finalized and you can no longer write to it.

    They don't make CDs or DVDs of a specific size; all are capable of 650/700.
