    I've heard of 800MB CDs, but I never see them in stores or online.

    I know there are something like 1.2GB CD's but you have to have a special burner for them... double density or something like that.

    But supposedly there are rare 800MB discs out there. Apparently they're not that uncommon, but a lot of people share movies that are around 750MB and these won't fit on a 700MB CDR let along a 650MB (who uses those anymore? lol). I could use TMPGEnc to convert to MPEG and split the files but that's a lot of work.

    All the movies I've seen at that size have been cd images, which you can fit onto a normal cd (because the image is raw data, and the raw size of an 80 min cd is just over 800MB).

    But if you really want some of those cd's you could try your local computer fair.
    Alternatively try disccity, 7 for 25, but there's P&P on top of that so club together with your friends and buy other stuff at the same time.

    Theres some info here on whether you will be able to burn 99 minute cdr's
    Where you can get them depends on where you live, in the UK I know you can get them from http://www.novatech.co.uk I dunno about rest or europe/states

    1.2GB cds never heard of that, but it sounds like they're not technicallly cd's

    ilw - They're not. The 1.2GB CDs are DDCDs or something like that, for double density. It takes a special burner to burn them, and a special reader to read them (though the burner of course, counts as a reader too). Hopefully in the future all CD-R drives support this format, just like the new DVD burners support both + and -. I'd love to use DDCDs but since not everyone has a DDCD drive it would be pointless unless I was making them for just me.

    lynx - Nope, I'm talking about AVI's. Thanks for the linkage though.

    Oh, that DiscCity is UK. I'm on the other side of the pond. LOL. California. I'll check the computer show... "Computer Show and Sale" is what they call it here. www.marketpro.com is the website - $7 to get in, $1 off if you give them your email address. When they come around, I'll either give them a fake or a bogus Hotmail they can spam, and get in for $6. Yeah, I'm a cheap bastard.

    I have seen them and the 830MB CDRs at computer shows. They cost a few pennies more than the 700MB. I am told that older CDROM drives may not detect them, or read them correctly.

    Sorry, I looked at your Timezone and assumed you were in UK.

    Edit: and if I had looked a bit further down I would have seen California.
