I have movies I downloaded, but they are too big for one c.d… I was wondering If I can use dvd-r’s since they have so much capacity. If not, Is there a program that would let me shrink the size of the movie?, like editing the files and such? thanks in advance
I don’t think you can use dvd discs in cd drives. However you can use cd discs in dvd drives. If I am wrong someone will correct me.
If you are trying to put a dvd length movie on cd’s you’ll need to use more than one cd in all probablity. You also need a program to do this.
Go to www.doom9.org and look for the dvd2svcd guide.
To answer your original quertion. You cannot burn to blank DVD with a cdr only burner. You can only burn to your cdr media. You will probably end up having to conver to vcd then burning to the cdr.
you can’t write dvd r or dvd rw’s in a cd rw drive the cd rw drive will not recognise the dvd cd to burn dvd’s you will need a dvd rw drive you can get them quite cheap!!! sorry im not sure wat the best programme is to shrink them!!! good luck
