Try setting "Mode 2" under "Advanced / Data Mode" in the "Burn CD Image" 
dialog, with a bit of luck you'll get it to fit. (On an 800 MB CD-R90, it 
should definitely fit in Mode 2. On a 700 MB standard CD-R, it may or may not 
depending on the actual capacity. The MB counts are given for Mode 1.) Be 
warned though that Mode 2 means less error correction, so it's not that great 
an idea, especially if your media isn't of the highest quality.
