I am trying to write a divx file to a 700mb cd...
BUt the file size is 739,782,656
When I open Nero, and attempt to write the cd, it tells me that the cd is 706mb.

And it spits out my blank media back.
Is there anyway to get the data written???

Not unless you can get the file smaller, or you change te limits on your NERO program to allow over burning up to 739 MB.

protorian,

you can go into Nero's settings and do an overburn...try it...I do that with large files....That normally dont necessarily fit.  Sometimes it errors out (depends on how big it is, most CD's are capable of overburning)but the divx movies still play...
Try this:
File, Preferences, Expert Features, click the Enable Overburn, and Change the Maximim CD Length (to something over 80 minutes....82 minutes or something then try it again.)  I have mine set to like 90 mins.
Try it and let me know what happens.

Yup, assuming that your burner can do a little overburning, you should be fine.  The actual file you have is ~705MB, it should fit fine on a 700MB disk.  If it won't overburn at all, try a different brand of disk that may have a bit more space.

Or I would not mind cutting th divx into 2 separate files..
If you can tell me the name of a program that could allow me to cut the divx into the 2 files, and then I would write them to disks...

To chop a DivX (yet another downfall of DivX) youll have to recompress it and thus lose quality.

I have tried the overburn.
but it seems like my writer does not support that feature.

Is there anyway that I can convert it to an svcd, or to mpg..
