Thread: After Putting A >700mb Avi File Onto A Cd

  1. #1
    most of our divx movies are appx 710-718mb, which requires to be finalized to be burned onto a 700mb cd, but what i often come across is that the life of these cds wont last long, because the more i viewed these overburned movies, the more error messages i will get, sometimes 3 - 4 error messages will pop up when viewing 1 cd of 1x700mb + file.

    do you guys have the same problem? or is it just me? is there anything i can do about it?

    My guess would be as good as the last - the quality of CDs you are using. The point of digital is that it lasts "forever".

    That is unless you scratch the CD (which is technically altering the data) or it could be defined by the life of the medium I guess?

    I use cheap ass CD's and I dont have a problem. I got 200 CD's for 5 bucks. It was awesome. I had to pay like 25 up front, but I got a rebate. I go through CD's fast as hell too.

    I think it's because I burn them, then take them somewhere....then I end up giving them to my friends

    Office Max - it was a while ago. Like a few months. Whenever I see deals like that I just go ahead and get them... CD prices may drop in the future, but I doubt they will be down to that cheap.

    Another factor no ones mentioned is the state of your cd rom drive...Try copying the avi file to your hard drive...if your getting "checksum errors" when copying the AVI file from the cd then theres issues with your cd rom

    Now that I think about it I had that problem too. It happened because of scratches/smudges on the disk. You might try to clean the disk or look for scratches.
