AIFF Quicktime Pro conversion question

I have a 908 MB 16 bit 48 kHz AIFF audio file I want to resize to fit 
onto a regular CD for play in my car. It is a 90 minute voice audio 
file so reducing the kHz isn't a big deal with only a subtle quality 

I first exported it from the 48 kHz size to a 32 kHz and this reduced 
it to 649 MB. On attempting to burn it in Toast gave an error that 
there were no enough sectors available. ???

I then tried a conversion to 24 kHz which reduced it down to a 
smaller yet, 450 MB size. Both of these attempts to burn gave me the 
not enough sectors available warning in Toast on attempt to burn. ???

What am I missing? Is it because the length is still 90 minutes? The 
Quicktime file size is small enough to fit onto a 700 MB CD. I ended 
up spitting it into two-45 minute CD's @ 48 kHZ & 16 bit stereo. 
However, I did want it on one CD.

Any & all help appreciated.
