How much room should 151 favorites/bookmarks use on CD?

I burned them onto blank cd. When I then look, it says 29mb's were used up on the cd. How can that be? If one mb equals a thousand kb's, it should show I used up less than one mb.

I tried to look up how many kb's the favorites folder was, but the size was blank. But when I had 130 favorites, I looked them over, did a rough count, estimated about 350 kb's. Added 21 more since then, that still keeps it way below one mb. So how can the disc say I used up 29mb's?

A quote from another site detailing cd data storage: "For discs written with computer data the logical format used also consumes space available for user information. For example, the overhead for the first session of a multisession disc consumes 22 MB of space and each subsequent session thereafter uses 13 MB. And in the case of CD-RW discs which are formatted for random packet-writing, usable capacity is reduced by roughly 23%"
