I just burned a MP3 cd with iTunes by carefully selecting a 697.6Mb playlist. But when I went to burn the disc iTunes cut 3 songs to make it 649.7Mb. I'm assuming that iTunes thought the CD was a 650Mb'er but according to the CD packaging it can hold 80 mins of music (in a CD format) or 700Mb of data. What happened here?

no, it's not that itunes thinks you got a 650 mb disk, you'ld have to erase more songs then. When burning an mp3 disk with itunes, the application also burns some library files on your disk, so it can read the songs w/o probs when you put it back in the mac.

If you really want to make a 700 mb disk, you should burn the disk with toast or so, so the itunes library files aren't included...
