I had trouble with my operating system cd writer withing an iso file to 
a dvd. I kept getting the message that the media in the drive was wrong. 
It was a 700 megabyte file that I was trying to write to a DVD.

I found MagicISO which also allows you to create disk images. I just 
used magic iso to burn the disk. I didn't have any problems and even 
burned a 710 megabyte disk image that I created to a 700 megabyte disk. 
It used some sort of over burn to do it.
