    Once you select more than 99 files you lose the total size AFAIK , but you can right click on the selected files and goto Properties>General if you really need that information.

    not Sure , I use an old version of Nero Express and it tells me how many MB's I have selected and if it will fit on the CD, if not I just select a few and remove them Or vica versa...add a few more.

    Make sure the intended Player can play the Format you are burning ...or convert them to an audio CD if needed ( Nero will do that for you).

    Most CD's should hold closer to 700MB though.

    Its for PC viewing, XP,ect should be less fussy god I recall UDF and other odd things for 98. Might have been XP as well, but XP and vista are the PC uses so they go to archive cds. I use img burn these days so its pretty easy, still need to double check but sorting them into the correct size is diving me bonkers.
