Can't you just drag the files into a CD Writing package and let it tell you how many it will need? I was sure that Nero and Roxio support this.

Hey, personally i use two apps (one more than the other), these two apps are SizeMe http://lars.werner.no/?page_id=2 and Ignition http://www.kcsoftwar...m/index.php?ignition

I use Ignition the most, but that's only because i haven't fully checked SizeMe out yet.
