    Okay, two things, both of which require WinRar (or equivalent)

    one. try and compress the file to under 700 mb
    2. use winrar (or equivalent) to create an archive and split it into 700mb pieces, but that's more than one cd
    three. kill your computer because of it's inability to burn dvd's?

    If it's only a little bit over 700MB you could try 'overburning' it.

    What format is the file?

    If it is an iso file, then it will probably fit onto a CD, there's extra info in an iso which makes it bigger than the data contained in it. The iso file is designed to create a disk so it would be silly if it didn't fit.

    If it is an mpeg file and you are making a vcd then it will also probably fit, because vcds don't use the standard block and inter-block gap sizes, so you can fit about 800meg of mpeg onto an 80 minute cd.

    If neither of those ideas help you, check if your drive supports DAO overburning. If so, you can get 99 minute capacity disks which give a theoretical capacity of about 870 meg. In practice many drives won't burn past 90 minutes, but that's still a capacity of about 790 meg.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
