Im new to all this and was wondering about my filesizes.Managed to create a kvcd that is 795MB in size,went to burn it with nero,had a look at my cdr specs-cdr 80mins,capacity 703MB.Is this right,I thought a cdr 80 would hold 800MB.Anyhow when I go to burn and nero analyses the file it fits in the cdr but is showing a file size of 695MB.So wheres the 100MB decrease gone? Have I lost some quality bcos nero is rescaling something or am I just not understanding something obvious?

80 minute CD-Rs will hold about 807MB, but only when burning an audio or video CD. Data mode holds about 15% less (the 703MB you saw) due to error correction.

Are you looking at the meter on the bottom of Nero's screen? It bases the size of the disc on the data size, not audio/video size. If that's the case, there's nothing wrong with your file, everything should be happy...

Thanx,yeah on the bottom of the screen its showing 695MB and it burns just fine.However when the disc is burned and I click on its properties it shows that the amount of data on the disc is 695MB-this is the part that confuses me,the size of the file on my HD shows up as 795MB but the amount of data on my cdr is 100MB less!

I suppose I shouldnt worry to much as all seems to be well when I play it and Im gettin pretty good results so far.

That's strange, I check my KVCDs and Windows' properties box shows that the disc holds only about 3MB of data (I guess that would be the menus and VCD structures), but the .dat files are ~711MB...

But if they appear to play fine, then I wouldn't worry about it

i have a file which is 804mb or so, and I wish to burn it to an 780 min CD

I go into ner 5 and choose SVCD, and then copy over the mpg, then i choose re-encode or something like that on a pop-up box, since i heard reports of turning off the feature making Xbox's not play the svcd, next thing i know the file is 92mins long, is this right? can I still burn it?

sorry its an 804mb file, on an 80 minute CD.

When its put into nero, its 90+ minutes, will it still burn on the cd with the "fit to cd" encoding setting on?
