    guys.. listen... if you download an ISO image and it is larger than 700megs and you know the application is sold on CD Rom and you wonder "How can they get that application on a cd that only holds 700megs?"... its because of the TOC (table of content). When you burn a CD, at the end when it goes to finalize the CD, it writes the TOC. The TOC includes the size on disk, the locations of folders or files, etc... for example, WINNT when it was first released, microsoft enhanced the TOC to show the disk was 745 megs... by doing so, CDR programs freaked out when trying to burn and would not work... so along comes programs like CDR-WIN which would allow you to burn a cue file or an ISO file... basically, you can attempt to burn the file, and if it doesn't finallize the cd, you can still try and use your CD burner to read the contents on the disk... if you have one of the newer cd roms, it might be able to read it, but its not likley... by zipping the ISO as one person said, your not doing anything... you can't see the files unless you have an ISO editer... now that is another solution... download an ISO editor and have it rewrite the TOC....
