Hi I got 2 problems. I want to burn a 700mb .avi file onto a single 700mb CD. I have searched many guides/tuts on Google and don’t find what i need. I tried using Nero 8 and try to make a VCD of it, after 40 mins of encoding Nero changed the 700mb into a 1GB file. I understand how that happened, that’s because .avi file is supposed to be compressed, just like .mp3. So after changing to the VCD format, it’s larger.
But i just want to burn the 700mb file as it is onto a 700mb disc. Is this possible without too much of a hassle?
I know i can split the 700mb .avi file into 2 parts using AVI Splitter, and then burn them separately onto two 700mb CDs, but that’s going to waste more time for me and i would much like it better to just burn it straight on a CD.
I don’t wish to waste a DVD just for a 700mb movie. I know heaps of ways to burn it to DVD, and i have used heaps of tools before. But i don’t want that. I think it’s too much of a waste for a DVD, sure i can use programs like DVD Flick, DVD Santa, DVD FAB Platinum, ConvertX to DVD etc, there’re HEAPS of those tools i can use and i’ve used hundreds of them before. But i don’t wish to convert a 700mb file to a DVD format, because it’s just making the file larger and wasting a DVD and also wasting more time.
So anyway, i don’t wish to waste my DVDs on a 700mb movie, i need the DVDs for other things more important than this. I just want to burn the 700mb file as it is without making it larger or anything. And imagine people who doesn’t have a DVD writer, they can’t do it this way then, so PLEASE DON’T SUGGEST anything related to what i just said.
Please RECOMMEND “ANY” tool that will do the job, whether it’s freeware or shareware. I have my own ways of getting the shareware programs for free.
Now, i know it’s getting a bit annoying and pretty long already but here’s my 2nd question. Is there any tool that can convert/comrpess a 4.7GB DVD movie into a 700mb file? I’ve found a few guides on Google but those take too many steps as well as using 3 programs and A LOT of time just to do this. I just need a simple program that does everything for me. I don’t want to manually configure the encoding settings etc, there’re some burning softwares that makes u do all this work and that’s just plain annoying and waste of time.
