iTunes Disc Burning Help
I have about six albums worth of music from one artist totalling around 550MB. I figured that since a CD can hold up to 700MB, I could burn the whole compilation to one CD. So I created a playlist in iTunes with all the albums in the order I wanted them and clicked "Burn playlist to disc." I set the silence between tracks to 0 seconds because it's all Pink Floyd music and if you have ever listened to Pink Floyd, you'll know that the tracks flow continuously as if the whole album is one song. Content with my arrangement and confident it would work, I hit burn, only to be told it would not fit on one CD. Why is that, when the whole playlist is 550MB and a single CD can hold 700? Is it to do with the time (4h30m) instead of the data? If I burned an MP3 CD instead, would it work and would it play on a car CD player?
tl;dr Why won't 550MB of music fit on one 700MB CD?
Thank you for your help,
