WILL THE STUFF IN YOUR BURN FOLDER FIT ON YOUR CD?

When you drag items into your Burn Folder for burning to CD (choose New Burn Folder from the File menu), the items in there are just aliases to the real files on your hard disk. Because of this, it doesn't show you how much space all these files take up, so you don't know if they'll actually fit on a 700-MB CD. However, all is not lost. When you click the Burn button (found in the Burn folder itself), a dialog appears that tells you how much storage space you'll need on your CD. If it's more than 700 MB, hit the Cancel button, then start deleting aliases from the Burn folder until you get below 700 (or whatever the space is on your disc).
