    Think you'll need some splitter software to try and shave off beginning and end. Someone here will know what works best.

    Well first of all you could buy cd's that can contain 90 minutes. They can hold 800 MB of data, I think.

    Are the movies Avi or MPEG?

    MPEG-files of 800 MB can easily fit on a 700 MB disc, because that's vcs/svcd and if you burn these Nero will only look at the playtime of the file (see also Dvd-r help.com).

    If it's an AVI file then I'm afraid that you can only fit them onto a cd if you split them.

    Dimensio is right - you can buy 800 MB/90 min discs but some CD burners don't recognise them (damn it). Check out Doom9 (refer the home page on KLite) may have some software on there, or suggestions, unless someone with a clue comes back to you here

    Most of the movies i download are .avi files, i'll have to look for those 800mb cd's. The ones i have now are only 700mb. Thank you.

    Also i cant wait until DVD-RW's go down in price and get faster! I'll get one of those in a year i hope.

    If you get 800mb CDR you have to enable overburning in your burning prog.

    Check out the page I suggested earlier. They have on the left side a column with all their topics. Scroll down and look in the section "Other" for an item that&#39;s called: "Cd writers comparison list". Click that and you will see a long list of cd writers and their specifications. Good luck.

    You can burn 800MB of VIDEO (AVI/SVCD/VCD) or AUDIO into a regular 700MB cd. how? burning in mode 2 - form 2.

    In this mode, the cd uses its full capacity to burn video or audio data. in mode 1 or mode 2 - form 1, a part of the cd is used to avoid read errors - in other words, error correction. It is used to verify the read data.

    You can burn in this mode using a software named XCD.

    Read more about XCD and this "new" way of burning here.


    P.S.: It is not recommended to burn DATA (softwares) in this mode because the cd is more likely to get read errors, since the error correction is disabled. Video/Audio softwares use their own error correction system, that&#39;s why it is not necessary to have error correction burnt into the cd. that&#39;s what i&#39;ve heard.
