Default Overburning a CD for a file.

sponsored links

 
I have a file, not an image, just a file that is just a little bit over 700MB and i need to burn it to a cdr, so how do i overburn these? images overburn fine, they ask me if i need to overburn, but these files just say that there is not enough space on the disc, they do not even ask to overburn. i am using nero BTW.
thanks and please help me, i have a few gigs of stuff i need burned.

I use Nero and in the Preferences-> Expert section you can set overburning. Likely other software will give you a similar option.

Use DAO. If the file is just a bit over 700MB it will likely burn OK as I think a 700MB CD-R can hold around 730MB of data

I have had that done. But it is still not working. BTW it sets it under minutes and not data.
So what do I need to do now?
thanks

Do you know that your writer supports overburning? Not all of them do.

Certain versions of Nero had an overburning bug. Perhaps you are using such a version?

I really wouldn't want to try overburning 800MB's onto an 80min CDR. That is like over 10 mins of overburn.

You may also wish to try a lower speed when burning as CLV tends to handle overburning better than CAV, Z-CLV, etc.
