Some cd burning software allows you to overburn, although it does not recomment it. This allows for extra files to be added to the disc.

How many songs are you burning to disc?

I dont have a great knowledge of cd burning, but unless you either get larger discs, then I don't think they will fit on. Even overburn might not stretch that far.

I take it you are using 700mb discs then? If so, you could maybe try 800mb.

Is the disc for playing on a hi-fi or pc?

You can put tons of MP3 files on a disc, but these only play on dvd players, hi-fi and pc's that have the proper coders/decoders to do it.

The above is just an example, you may get them cheaper elsewhere if you look around the net.

If you are just putting MP3's on the disc, each MP3 is round about 5-10mb. SO with your 700mb disc you should get plaent on it.

You must be convertingthe mp's to .wav files so that normal hi-fi's can read them. In that case you will probably need larger cd disc capacity.

There may well be software out there that compresses the files in some way, but I do not know of any.

If you are placing MP3 files onto the disc, then do not burn it as a music disc. Burn it as a data disc and it will keep the MP3's intact.

If you select burn a music disc, then the mp3's are converted for hi-fi use and are much bigger.
