burning big isos

ive recently noticed that certain ISOs are bigger than 700 mb. how does one go to burn these if they are bigger than the standard cd-r? wouldnt that make it a non iso file? (even though its extension is .iso) or does one have to burn in a certain mode 9660, etc etc)?

thx, Apu

well if your talking about bi/cue files the bin file may show as 750 meg ..but once burnt they will be much smaller ...750 meg bin file may only be 650 meg once burnt

i see so few iso' i am not sure about that

The ISO file simply has all the r/w information that needs to go on the CD. Like lets say you are 'backing up' a cd that is protected by built in read errors. 10MB of read errors on a CD might take 80MB in an ISO file. I had a image I made from a CD once that was almost 900MB but it would burn on a normal CD just fine, no overburn or anything. I would just try burning the ISO to a CD and see if you get a coster or not. That is normally a pretty dern good way to see if it's ok or not.


That, or you could download winiso. Get it here.

Hope that answers your question! :)
