You need NERO burning ROM.....There is a setting on it to over burn so you can get up to 800 mb of Data on a 700 mb CDR or CDRW. If you do this, do not burn the ISO image at full speed as you can get DATA errors. The OVER BURN setting was used A LOT a few years ago to burn VCD video files to CDR/CDRW.

Hope this helps.
