    I have a CD with various programms in it.It's a data CD with 700 Mb capacity. When I right click on the CD in My computer, it says 693Mb total disk space. But when I browse the CD and select all the files and then right click properties, it says they are 1Gbyte!!!
    I confirmed that by copying the CD to my hard disk (copy -paste). It took up 1 Gbyte of hd space!!!
    So , what's the deal? Is there a way to create compressed images and fit in 1 cd-r80 more than 700Mb of executable (not zipped) files ?
