Enhanced Audio CD too big



The issue: CD Capacity, 75 Mb (that’s not a typo) and data size around 85 MB. (Doesn’t fit)

Enhanced Audio CD - Audio track + Mac Data + PC Data

Using Toast 8.0.3 on a Mac / Sony DVD RW DW-D150A

The cumulative file size is fine. However when the disk is created for replication the file size jumps. Through research it looks like this is due to a 2.5 min gap inserted between the data / audio.

Now I understand this is the spec and how it’s suppose to work. Is there a way around this or a better way we should be looking to create a Audio/Data CD?

Thanks in advance.
