This is usually an issue with the burner itself. 700 meg is not an
"official" cd-rom format, but people have found that you can make it
work. It's kind of like over-clocking, on some systems it's easy, others
not so easy (or impossible). If your burner is recent (<1 year old) it
will probably work, older than that, it's a crap shoot. The
documentation that came with it should mention 700M cds if it can do it.
My 3 year old Plextor 4x can't handle them.
