MP3 songs are already compressed. You can't compress the files any further. All you could do is to re-sample them to a lower bit-rate with lower Quality. You'll probably not want to do that.

There is another way you can burn all your mp3s. There are cd's with larger size, like 870 ,850, 900 mb, etc. Try searching. Nero uses for this operations from preferences...the option ''overburn'' and modify to the size of your data (855mb  for safety).
BUT! :
Before doing anything check if your cd-rw/dvd-rw supports overburn, and check if the larger cd can be read by other devices.

Good luck,
cheers
