I can’t copy a CDR I have with a 698MB MPEG on it, onto a blank Memorex 700MB CDR (80 mins, 52x multi speed). The same 698MB file is also on my hard drive, but I also can’t copy it from there, either. I’ve done it in the past, but just wasted 6 CDRs trying unsuccessfully. I tried with Win XP’s built in CD copier, and Roxio’s Disc Copier feature from the Easy CD Creator 5 software that came with my PC - no such luck. I also tried putting the 698MB file into a Zip file, but I still couldn’t copy it.
I haven’t done any software changes, and I can successfully copy smaller files, so I think it’s the 698MB size that’s the issue. I think I know what the problem might be: after the copies didn’t work, I deleted the temporary files the system created. Although the file states 698MB as its size, the temporary file’s size was listed at 715MB in the Recycle Bin. The disk was given to me, so I don’t know how it got on to its 700MB CDR in the first place, but does anyone have any ideas how I can copy the files to a 700MB CDR?
