    ok...i understand the difference between the two, or rather why the difference occurs. but what i don't know is what size should i be concerned with when burning to a cd-r?

    assuming a i have a CD-r with an absolute maximum capacity of 700 MB, a file size 699 MB with a size on disk of 710 MB; will the file fit on the CD?

    i guess a can try to burn it to test it out but i'd rather not waste a CD.

    It will tell you when you try to burn the CD if there is not enough room. You shouldn't have to waste the disk.

    You usually have to finalize it for something that big, but that just means you can't add anything else to the disc, which you wouldn't want to do anyways.
