Does anyone know where I can get some 850MB or 900MB CD-RW's (preferably 10x)?

Where did you see that there is such a thing as a 900MB CD-RW disk?  You can try to overburn a high capacity 730MB CDROM to 800MB or more in many cases, but not always.  Such a CD-R would be labled and sold as a 730MB because the extra space is never guaranteed.

I can find several references to people getting up to 900MB with a CD-RW drive, but these are all cases of overburn.  There does not seem to be any such thing as a native 900MB CD-RW:

I was originally trying to find some 850MB cd-rw's because I saw some 850MB cdr's.  But while I was looking for that someone told me there were 900MB too.  By the way, I have a Yamaha CRW2200EZ

Everything past 700MB is out of spec.  Did you not read that link I provided?  That model Yamaha is the worst at overburning - see chart halfway down page.

I sure wish I knew what I know now back when I got that CD burner, otherwise I would have got a lite on drive.  And ironically they're cheaper than yamaha's.  <sigh> oh well, thanks for the info.
