2 GB Data on a CD-ROM?

By mrugesh_karnik ·
I've recently got 2 CD-ROMs in my hand, both contain over 1.5 GB of data. One of them was Knoppix (Something like that) Linux ISO, which contains over 1700 MB. In the documentation, it is said to be done by Transparent Decompression method. Both CDs show size of 700 MB when inserted in a drive and so is their ISO image size. How do we do it?

Average compression routines normall do 2 to 1.
This is one of the better ones, so 3 to 1.
There is a lot of information on compression avaiable, and a lot of methods, and there is not enought space allowed for these answers, to even start.
Enjoy your research.

Do a google search on Transparent Decompression method.

You will get more reading than you can shake a stick at.

Sorry my southern is showing.
