    A friend ripped a few CDs for me, but some of them don't fit on a standard 700MB CD-R disc. The additional data is usually negligible in size... say, 715MB total.

    Is there anyway to burn these CDs on a single CD-R disc using Toast Titanium? I can't figure it out and I'm starting to get a headache...

    Thanks!

    This depends on whether the CD ROM drive you have supports overburning. Generally MAC hardware does not have this feature enabled. Your options include getting an external CD-ROM drive with the a firmware version that allows 'overburning'. You can also get CD-Rs that support this feature, but I believe that all CDRs support it, so it may just be a marketing gimic.

    Hmm, I have an aluminum Macbook... would this drive be capable of 'over-burning'? Is it even possible for Toast Titanium to perform this feature?

    It just seems a bit odd that a Red Book CD rip would yield an image greater than 700MB. It seems kind of backwards to make the end-user jump through all these hoops. Any practical suggestions? Are there readily available CD-R discs with 800MB instead?

    Thanks for the help.
