    Hi, I'm using Windows XP CD creator to burn some lectures to CD. There are about 15 separate files which total about 400MB. My CD will hold 700MB, but when I start the burn all but the first file have a message next to them "not enough room". ??? I can't figure it out. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

    Are the lectures some type of audio files? If so, it sounds like you may be trying to create audio CDs that can be played on most portable CD players, car stereos and home stereo systems. The burning software needs to recode your audio files into a compatible audio CD track structure. To be able to play on most old and new audio CD players, the disc can not hold more than about 70 minutes of audio.

    On the other hand, you can create a Data CD that should be able to easily hold your 400 MB of files in the same data format as on your computer. You can then play the files back on another computer but they would not play on any CD player unless it specifically supports playback of your audio files types from a data CD.
