I heard that Adaptec's Easy Cd Software makes a Table of contents (TOC) after you burn a CD, and that this TOC can take up 40mb's of CD space.
My Question is:
A) Is this true?
B) How can i "bypass" this when using Easy cd creator?
(More points will be added if i find a good solution for question b )

The answer is:
a) Yes it is true that it takes that much, sometimes more.  It depends on how safe you want to be.  See also the FAQ at:
                   http://www.adaptec.com/support/overview/cdrec.html
and
                   http://www.adaptec.com/support/faqs/dcdissues.html

b) Yes,  you can't get around it but not without taking a risk.  If you don't reserve enough space then you can  end up without enough to save.  You will have to gauge how much space you need to leave if it is less than what the program tells you you need.  You  can try to write the CD with a slight overtime.  Your version may or may not permit this.  

There is a lot of difference beteen the versions too.  So not every version handles this the same way.

Hope this and the information at thet links helps.

Oh, by the way, you can also search the Adaptec data base of problem reports, there are several of them on this subject.  Just use their search engine.
