    Hi guys I'm having trouble here,I download some files and the are 700mb large,now when I reformat,some of the diskspace is taken and the free space goes from 702 to 696m mb.Is there any way to fix this?I mean,the file itself is just the right size(only 4 mb too large.)

    What do you mean, reformat? How are you burning these files? What software?

    I'm not using any software,im using windows.Btw I'm using a hp pavillion dv 6000 and the os is vista,so I guess it's already built in.Do you think I should use other freeware on the web?

    Sounds like you are using the CD with the Windows CD Burning Wizard, if you burn the disk as a data disk you won't lose that space you noticed.
