I made a database with a lot of pictures, now I want to put a part of it on CD.

When I select the records which I don't need and delete them, the database doesn't get any smaller, because it's not checking for unused blocks.. Why not?

When I make the db completely empty it is checking for unused blocks and the size decreases dramatically...

You can reduce the size of the database by using the "Save a Copy As..." command from the file menu. Select "compressed copy" from the options.
