I am desperately trying to use a larger disc format than the usual 700 MB disc, but the NERO program (with the burner listed above) does not appear to recognize the extra 100 MB. Is there any way to convince the program to do it?

I would appreciate any clue.
Thanks
Michael

You should use the overburn facility wich is inside Nero burning Rom

3. How can I burn CDs that are larger than the standard 74 minutes CDs? Such as 80min and 90min CDs?

Your CD Recorder must support the overburning feature. The Recorder must support this type of media as well. Some recorders support 80min media but will not support 90min or 99min media. You should make sure you have the latest version of Nero, though this is supported from Nero 5.0 and above.
And you need to have the latest firmware for your model recorder, as it will contain information to enable overburning, but most importantly, it will contain Read/Write strategies for new CDR and CDRW brand of media and can resolve many issues you may otherwise run into.
You MUST burn in Disc-At-Once or Disc-At-Once 96 write mode or you can not Overburn. The mutlisession mode is not possible, if you want to burn such CDs.
You MUST enable overburning in Nero's File - >Preferences -> Expert Features, or if you have Nero Express, do so from More -> Configure -> Expert Features.
And you must deactivate/disable Check for correct disc format from within Neros Files -> Preferences -> General, or from within Nero Expresss More -> Configure -> General settings.
When you enable Overburning in Expert Features, you should use the below settings based on the size of media you are working with:
For 80min media set to - 82:00
For 90min media set to - 89:30
For 99min media set to - 99:54:74

Important Note: You can have always 99:54:74 min entered so it will always enable burning to the max.

btw, some more information to add
http://www.digit-life.com/articles/cdrw12/
at about 80% of the page I found this line:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
With the Nero Burning Rom 5.5.1.8. we obtained 91 min. 55 sec.

btw, one more thing.
This means that the "Important Note" should read:
You can have always 91:55:00 min entered so it will always enable burning to the maximum your drive can handle.

Thank you

I am sorry for the delay in my feedback....

In fact, all you said was completely correct, but NERO still doesnt recognize the larger CD's. Maybe the problem is indeed in my Writer model, which is ricoh mp7200a, or an old driver. I will let you know if it worked. But as for NERO, excellent tip. Thanks.
