Hi Expert

I have two questions:
1, When I wanted to burn music file into DVD ( it contains 4.38G space) disk. it limited the time period to 80 min. So I could not copy more files or a bigger file into the disk. The file type is CD file and it would be played in a car. Any expert have any suggestion for it ?
2, Why does the disk file has to be "CD" type ? otherwise it cannot be played
Thank you

There are 90-99 minute CD-Rs out there, but I doubt there are many cars in the world that have stereos that can play them.

So, to answer your question: no, there isn't a way of doing it in most cars that can read standard CDs. Most car stereos are built to read CDs that contain uncompressed media (.wav), a standard that hasn't changed in a long time.  Some cars can play what are called "MP3 or WMA CDs", which are just data CDs with MP3 or WMA files burned on them. I would consult your owner's manual to see what kind of media types are playable.

A car stereo needs a specific type of uncompressed, formatted media in order to play. That's why it has to be a "CD" and not a data-filled DVD like you are trying to make.

You say>The file type is CD file and it would be played in a car.
as in CDA? or mp3 files as a data disc on the CD?
Does your Car CD player support MP3 data cd's?
This way you fit hundreds on.
The number of songs that a disc can hold depends on how the songs are encoded and the length of the songs.
A standard audio CD (74 minutes) ( CDA) can hold about 18 songs,
These files cannot be copied to HDD as is must be converted to MP3
However a 650-MB data CD (equivalent to 74-minute audio CD) containing mid-quality (160-kb/s)
Data discs ie audio files(mp3) can hold approximately 9.5 hours of music or about 138 songs.
But older car CD players donot support these.

Otherwise use your cigerette lighter
Use a USB pen drive and plug that into your USB  FM player
If you dont have one
This what I use now much simpler and I just carry the USB stick back to my PC and upload my tracks. Too easy and no more CD's.
Plug it into your cigerette lighter then play it and tune your FM radio station to this. It plays through your car speakers
