    How the hell is an mp3 over 700megs (unless its a album) use "overburn" for upto 705megs BUT cut it slow say 8 speed, should take mine do.
    Otherwise name the file so we know what it is.

    Perhaps the .mp3 is 80 min. long (???). With an apropirate program you could split it. Magic Music Maker or something.

    Overburn is to burn "slightly" more than the disc would normally hold but can also depend on the make of disc ie sony etc some burn better than others in other words.

    Is a good read about how to with different files and sizes.

    With the movie if it as the end titles and a long begining you can cut these off to make it smaller then it will fit to disc.

    Otherwise if it is so big you can't cut then you will have to re-encode it down to fit the disc.

    If just Windows gives you the message about not being registered, open a media player of your choice (i.e. WMP) and when asked tell it to open this type of file by default.
