burn 800 meg onto a 700 meg disc?  I have an older external Nero  burner.  

Do I need another type of disc?  I don't believe it will burn DVD stuff.

Thanks for the help.

simply stated, you cant. you can compress the photos more, or burn 700mb on one disc and the remaining 100 on another.

I shot my nephews at their baseball game today (they are awesome players).  Shot them using my old Soligor zoom (manual focus) and my newer Pentax K100D at 6 megapixel.

I guess I could compress a little, if I could figure that part out.  Jeesh.  Stupid hurts.

Are you trying to use the disk to play a slideshow?  If not couldn't you put the pics in a zip file then burn that to the disk?

Yeah, like I'd know how to burn them into a zip file.  

I am simply taking the raw jpeg files (6 megapixel) and burn them onto one disc.  I could use two discs, but really want them all on one.

Jpegs are already a compressed format, I don't think you would get much more space savings out of a .zip. However reducing the size/ quality of the jpegs will.

just resize the pictures in bulk.... it will cut the space required in half......

edit:

here is what i use to resize all my photos down to a webfriendly size.

www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize

edit again:

rename it something like PhotoResizeP50I.exe and it will make all the images 50% smaller in size and rewrite the orginals.

by "rewrite" the orginals i mean overwrite. meaning you will lose the orginals if you put the I on the end.
