Default Re: can you put a larger MB on a 700mb cd-r

Hmm... I'm not sure about that.
I get what you mean though, though it couldn't therietically stretch it that far.
It could in some means I think compress a 1gb into 700mb but it depends on the file intended for use. An EXE for example wouldn't compress that much.

If its an ISO file or some type of image file, this will be why you can't use over burn or compress it.

Your only option would then be to get a bigger CD-r, which is a really easy option.

Thanks Tim
Hi there,

Well I have in the past been able to fit 720mb on a single 700mb CDR using Nero Burning Rom. You can try compressing the file further down using a good compression program like WinRar using the "Best Compression" option and it might just knock off and extra 10mb, so your 720mb program will ovbviously become 710mb.

Just keep in mind that i have created many CD's where the files im copying exceeded the 700mb mark, "Nero Burning Rom" would just come up on screen telling me that the file will not fit onto CD UNLESS I finalise the CD, if you click yes to the option then it will be added.

Yeah this will be why then.
Just buy a 800mb cd-r set, or even 730mb ones

i have no problems with 720mb any day... Nero somehow manages to squash the extra few megabytes onto CD and finalises it

If its too much, just go with Kage's idea... hunt for the 800 CD...

Hmm weird. I can get loads from computer shiops here in the UK. Even from HMV and Game... or somewhere like WhSmith if you have them.

I have about 50 800mb ones left. There all a non known make, but they seem to do well for normal things.

I just contacted a wholesaler and he said that he can make a special order for me, but i have to buy something like 10 packs of 100 Boxed CD's for the order to be valid :P

im happy with 700mb hehe....
I remember the days when we had the 650 MB cds and the 700 mb
were so special...

I know that down in Australia where Im originally from, Id find the 800mb CDs everywhere, but im presently in pyramid land (Egypt) and for some silly reason its not common out here in my area
