Hi, im from the uk and, having looked in virtually every pc store in the country, i still cannot find writable cd's of 800mb size, we only seem to have 700mb. is it possible to get bigger cd's than 700mb? If so can u tell me where from cos i have many films of about 720mb, am running out of space on my harddrive, and dont want to have to split them into two to put them onto cd if i dont have to!

Cheers guys

You should be able to burn your movies on 700 MB ones fine.

Well but u've burned a vcd, and i think this guy want's to burn avi's on a cd so, that doesn't really solve his problem... also u can brun about 799 mb of mpeg-movie on one 700 mb cd, if burned as vcd...

But here in the netherlands u can just buy 800 and even 900 mb cd's in stores... Maybe u've been searching to much on the internet and instead u should try going to a shop where they sell this type of stuff....

I keep them in my shared folder to upload. I've heard about 800mb cd and 900 mb cd but haven't seen any here. Maybe its time for a new hardrive .They are getting cheaper .I just upgraded from 15 to 60 gig what a change.Don,t even use the 15 ,keep it as a backup..

Iím having the same problem as -=M3th0d=-.
the most I can burn is 719mb any more and it just spits out the CD and says there not enough room on it.
Iím using Easy CD at the moment any suggestions??

Software like Nero will allow you to overburn to a certain degree, squeezing more onto your CD. Most AVI's are specifically produced to absolutely maximise the space available on a 700Mb CD, so try Nero (or similar), and you'll probably find you're fine!

I've tried to overburn with Nero without too much luck...it offers you the facility to increase the minutes but not the MB.

No, its the other way round - ive looked in all the shops, but dont really know where to look online. If u could point me to websites of the shops you find them in netherlands i would be most grateful :) .

Same to anyone else - if you know websites gimme gimme gimme! :D

Here you go - check out what I found on Google

Google Search for cd-r 800 MB (UK) (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=cd-r+800MB&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en&btnG=Google+Search&meta=cr%3DcountryUK%7CcountryGB)

Found out how to overburn with Nero:

In a full version of Nero go to file-perferences-expert options- enable overburn and set the max overburn value to what you want.


Before writing:

Under the multi session tab: tick "no multi session" Under the burn tab: choose "disc-at-once" and tick "finalise cd".


Now click burn and you will be asked if you would like to overburn.

Nero offers overburn, but I believe that is only effective when used with 90min+ CDs, I&#39;ve seens several places online to get them, but I do know if VCDs will work. Actually, I have a VCD file that is slightly over 800mb, do you think it would fit on a 700mb disk? and if not, will overburning work w/ VCDs?

Try ebay. I&#39;ve seen them on there. They seem reasonable too. Good luck.

That is cheap but the snicky devils charge £7.00 for delivery which goes up to £10 if you want two packs. I ordered two anyway because its still a reasonable price. There are a few sites selling at about the same price (incl. del.) but none of which inspired confidence in they ability for quick and reliable service (with the amount of talent out there, is there any excuse for such shoddy sites these days?). The highest price I found was for single CD-Rs at Maplin: £1.75 per disc&#33; Thats roughly £65 more expensive than my 50 discs from Scan.
Now I can search out all those slighter bigger movies that I have avoided in the past :)
