    if you get a 800 MB (90 min) CD and your burner supports them you don't need to trim anything, or if your burning app and burner supports overburning you could try overburning a 700 MB disk.

    I don't know what country you live in. In my country, Great Britain, you can buy 800 MB / 90 Min CD-Rs in stores in 10 packs for the same as $10 US money, Philips ones cost $10 for 25 packs on the web.

    They sell them in Maplin, Currys Digital, Virgin Megastore, all over the place. I've even seen them in Tesco.

    You need to make sure they are 90 minute disks. They don't always work with all burner drives but I've used them plenty of times myself. If your drive does not like them they'll still work like normal CD-Rs. You can also get 99 minute disks but they can be very tricky to burn and quite expensive.
