First off, please forgive me if this falls outside of Forum acceptability. It does not deal with bootlegging of any kind. Second, I am trying to create an image of a cd-r that I have using easy CD creator. The original disc is 700megs and is very close to full. My dilemma is that when I try to make an image(to send to another computer I use) the size of the file is about 820megs and will not fit on to a 700meg disc. Isn't a cd image essentially a "picture" of what's on the cd? Should it not be just under 700megs just like the information on the original cd-r? Can anyone shed some light on to why this is happening?
