    I have been downloading SVCDs from the newsgroups and have several on my harddrive. The problem that I am having is whoever made these set them to over 800meg. I am using Nero 6 but it will not let me overburn a cd that much. What am I doing wrong?

    All the CD-R's ive used have 700 mb's of space. The most overburn ive ever been able to get is 703 mb's. Ive never heard of a 100 mb overburn...how much space do your discs have?

    Might be a mis-understanding, but... The reported size of a file will vary depending on where you're reading it at. Yesterday I burned an ISO with Nero - in one spot it said it was 799MB of data. But the actual amount burned to disk was right around 700 MB. If you use "Burning Rom" instead of "Express", you should see a graph on the bottom that shows if the amount you are really burning exceeds the 700 mark and into overburn territory. And of course, you need to have overburning set up correctly in Nero's options if you indeed need to overburn.

    The scale says 701meg but the nero folder says the file is 806meg. It still kicks out the cd saying there is not enough room on the disk. Oh ya, I'm using 700meg and 80min disk.

    In Nero's preferences / expert features tab, you have to enable overburn "disk-at-once" burning, and set the maximum CD length. Then it's a matter of trial-and-error to see how much extra you can squeeze onto a particular brand of CD-R. Though you can do an overburn test first and use it's results as a guide. I have my max set at 82 mins. Use Nero's help files for info about using "overburn".

    I have the max set to 90min but I still get the no can do. I noticed that in the log it says that the overburn is false but I have it checked on. Here is what the log said.

    Please post your own thread! You jumped in the middle of several threads with a totally unrelated question. That's not how we do things here. (n)

    Again, the reported size of a file will vary depending on where you're reading it at (and how it's being interpreted). It appears they were successful in burning 701mb of raw data, as noted in the Nero Burning Rom graphical scale.
