that is referring to the fact that liteon can burn 99 min disks which requires use of its overburning capabilities, it is not saying that it can overburn 99 mins to a 80min disk

Well maybe. The problem is that the standard describing CDRs is for 74minute/650meg CDRs. The 80minute/700 meg CDR is created by winding the track a little tighter on the disc, so the track seperation is slightly thinner so that a greater length can fit on the disc.
With 90 and 99 minute discs the limits are really being pushed. From what I understand the 99 minute discs squeeze the maximum data space out of the data track by minimising the space set for the lead-in and lead-out tracks.
When overburning what's actually happening is that the data written to the disc is encroaching on the part of the track usually used for the lead in & lead out. You need a valid leadin & leadout for the disc to be readable, with the 99min discs having a small area on the track for this already there's probably not alot of space left for any overburning.
Also, as I said, the standard for CDs is 74minutes, technically 80 minutes is not complient with the standard, the more data you put on a disc the less complient it becomes meaning data reliability and readability in CDROMs is impacted.
IMHO if you have more than 80 minutes/700meg of data, split it over 2 discs.

81 min or 82 min, I'd go ahead and overburn on a 80min cd, but that's me.
It's a pain in the butt splitting a book on tape up if it's only 1 or 2 minutes
over for example... cd worked fine in my car...

ok thanks for all the advice guys
i may need to buy some 90min cdr as i have some DivX which are 800mb already split across 2 disks; i guess i could always split it across 3, it'll prob be cheaper to use an extra 80min disk than to buy some 90/99 .

Humm well i think that the best type of test would be to try and burn 875mb worth of files and burn in minutes onto your cd media.. ( a large test svcd or somthing. similar)

then when its done burning , after it says its successfull, just try and extract everything from your cd, and check to see that the file size is the same as what you burned.. ( 875mb )

if that works well then i guess you just put 99min worth of data onto your cd.

seems simple to me. maby too simple. but would make sense.
