If you are looking to store 900 megabytes of data onto a CD, you must compress the information, because a standard CD only fits 700 megabytes. You aren't able to do this with a music or video CD (and have the disc still play in a CD or DVD player), but it is possible with a data CD. Once the information is compressed you can record the information onto a CD.
