first question, are you using the ISO burning (not familiar with Nero) option in Nero, if not that is probably your problem, because the Debian CDs I have are the same size and fit fine on 700 MB CDs.

Talking Expert Features

In nero go to prefrences and to the expert features tab, and check enable overburning. Also when your burning the disc make sure you check finalize disc, you can't overburn without it.

Hope that helps

This is really getting my nerves, I have checked the: file -> preferences -> expert features-> I have enable over burn disk at once.

I do check the finalize box and I still get the error:

There is not enough space to burnÖ.etc

Damn Nero.

Since the ISO is a direct byte-for-byte copy of a regular cd, there's no way it can't fit, as long as you are doing it right and there are no problems with your hardware. As audibel asked, are you using the burn ISO image function to write the disk, or are you just trying to burn it as a regular data cd? If the latter, then the disk won't work even if you get it to burn.

You need to find the "burn image" command. On Nero 6 it's found under the "recorder" menu. When you select the command, all you have to do is direct the program to the ISO and hit burn. No need to mess with other settings.

Do you burn it as data files or an image one? That makes a difference!

A blank disc can hold 700MB with image burning, but simply saves 650MB bootable CD as data files, i think.

if it's still not working I would go back to expert features, and change the setting to allow overburning up to 99 minutes. Good luck.
