How far can you overburn a cd?

I'm wondering how much data I can actually fit on to a 700MB cd...

I haven't been successful with 700mb CDs. I can get about 680mb on a 650 CD, tho. I use a plextor16x btw.

okay, well I'm going to try to burn a 770MB file onto one cd, and see how well it goes as soon as it's done. I have a 8x scsi burner made by smart and friendly(now out of business).

Well, in the never versions of Nero (i use 5.5.5.1) you can see media info witch displays how much you actually can burn on that perticular cd. With the cheap 100cake noname CDs I use the limit is usually 704-703 MB.

To get that 770MB into one CD i'd go buy myself a 90 or a 99Min CDR. They do exist, some shopes here in norway sell them. The 90min verison should be perfect for your needs. But, you have to have a burner that supports it.

I found some:
Standard 20X CDR Silver 90min 780Mb spindle 100-pack bulk
Webpris 841.00 SEK aprox 100USD. (you can get them cheaper)

and a link to an overview of some of the more standard burners limitations.
Some supported CDburners (scroll down)

99 min are hard to find then the burner has to support Overburn.You can get your home movies on cds now with the right compression(for sound and video) makes dvd almost useless and hard to justify.
