As I mentioned, with overburning enabled, and without any
error during burning, I could fir the image file on a 700 MB
medium, but the problem might be the reader which is not
tolerant enough to fully work with that nonstandard medium
as a result.

And: Yes, I know and _have_ at least one 800 MB blank CD,
which is obvious because I am a living museum. :-)
