no problem from the production side. Last year I asked for prices
and possible problems with sizes >650 (700, 750, ...). The answer
was, absolutely no problems as long as you stay with standards
(700Mb), they will put anything on a CD you come up with (~900).
But you will loose customers, because "normal" drives (not too old)
will read <=750, only very new ones more. Prices for the number of
CDs we are producing (>5.000) are the same.
