I've successfully burned several audio CDs over 80 minutes long, onto '90 minute' CDs, after changing the 'expert features' setting. However, using the same physical drive and and the same software settings, if I try to burn 705mb of non-audio data onto one of these CDs, Nero ejects it saying there isn't enough room.
Is there any way of forcing Nero to burn data beyond 700mb?
re zipping - the files are already zipped max compression. I also have some 750mb and 790mb files.
re damaging my drive - well, I've burned 88 minute audio CDs which is around 780mb, so a 705mb data burn won't do any (additional) damage.
re Nero's help files - they refer only to audio CDs. Doesn't it seem odd that the expert features panel allows overburn to be expressed only in minutes, not mb? The only possible clue there is that overburn works only in DAO mode: if data CDs default to TAO (which seems unlikely) then changing to TAO might get around the problem.
I'll try that tonight. Meanwhile, has anyone successfully written a data, not audio, cd of well over 700mb onto a 90 or 99 'minute' CD?
