Might depend on what software you are using to burn them... I haven't personally tried 90 minute CDs, but it looks like X-CDRoast will burn 89-minute, and even 99-minute ones.

Not sure, though. I didn't even know they came that big

I'm not sure of the details, but CD-R discs do come in several different sizes. Used to be that most of them were 74min/650MB, now you see 80min/700MB pretty frequently. I presume that 90min ones just have a higher density of bits, and you're able to fit more on them.

Anyone else know?

Indeed there are 90 min and even 99min disks. The density isn't actually greater, the lead out is just further out. XCD Roast has a selector for each type. If you are using cli, then you need the overburn option, you also must have a drive that supports overburn and you almost always have to record in DAO mode. I have overburnt 80 min disks to 82 mins to fit music on, but I haven't tried the 90 min disks yet.

Huh? Where does it say anything about small ones?
