if its a vcd or svcd porn movie then it can be up to 800 megs, otherwise you will have to overburn

No problemo, as long as your cdrs aren't shoddy cheap ones. I use TDK Metallic ones, and was able to burn a 750mb iso to one using burnatonce, with no trouble.

The BIN size is never the size of the cd. It contains extra data that's not burned (error correction stuff i believe). You can mount the bin file and see what the actual size of the cd is.

but when i put in the empty 700 MB cd and set the 730 MB BIN image file to burn , it goes over the red line in nero, will it still fit?

most bin files come with a cue file which contains what type of data needs to be written to cd.

you're burning it wrong. you need the matching cue file and then in nero, choose to burn a disc image..select the cue file and it'll burn properly.

if you don't have the cue file, use something like UltraISO to convert the bin file to an ISO file and then do a disc image burn with the iso

I answered your question... so did everyone else, if its vcd or svcd porn movie, then it can be 800 megs and fit on a CD... if its a data CD, then you will be overburning and I don't know if your drive / media will support it

I'm assuming this BIN file is a cdrom image. If yes, then if there's a cue file that accompanies it, you select Burn Image from either the File or Record menu of Nero. You don't drag and drop it in a new cd compilation.

from what I've read, it can make the laser physically go past a point it was never designed to. thus damaging the drive.

Why don't you mount it with software like... Daemon Tools... :) Then just delete a few files that are NOT important, ?

Obviously I don't know what it is but its worth a go.

That's not true either. Data CDs have extra information in the .bin as well, thus increasing the size past the actual size of the CD.

BIN is RAW data usually, so when you burn it it takes up less space than the size of the disc.

depends on disc quality and your drive

Better explanation I found.

In DAO mode the CD-R software sends a CUE Sheet (TOC) to the CD-Writer, this CUE Sheet holds information needed for the leadin area (tracksizes & more). A CD-Writer which is not able to OverSize will reject the CUE Sheet when it contains track information which ends past the blank media reported length. The length is read from the pre-groove of the blank media and specifies the last possible position where DATA can be safely written to. A CD-Writer which is able to OverSize will just ignore this length and will try to burn the blank media up to the end of the pre-groove.

Keep in mind that OverSizing is not totally without risk. OverSizing is writing DATA to a place which is outside the original CD-R specifications. This can result that some CD readers (Audio & Data) can have problems reading the last 90 seconds of an OverSized CD-R. There is no guarantee that the quality of the pre-groove, dye and reflective layer, past the reported length, is as good as it is before!

A few CD-Writer software packages warn you that it is possible to damage your CD-Writer when trying to oversize a CD-R. At the moment there is totally no evidence supporting this warning. They just put it in their software just in case it happens and they then can say that you have been warned!

Because 1) Daemon Tools opens an image as read-only. 2) He doesn't need to do that, just burn it as an image and not a data CD and it will fit.

I assume this is windows longhorn 4074 right? you CANNOT burn it as a whole, you must delete some of the extras folders to bring down the size to 730MB

if it doesnt fit on a 700mb cd use an 800mb one.

i burnt a version of longhorn onto one of those with no problems(800mb that is).

:D go get a DVD burner they're only about US$100 now. ( I did, and I have to say I don't regret it )...

But as for the size of the bin file, they're always bigger than ISO files. and most of the time they show up bigger than the CD. You do need to find the .CUE file that goes with the BIN file.

BIN files are different than ISO files in the fact that ISO files have all the information about the tracks built into it. BIN files need a seperate file ( the cue file) to know which files need to be burned.

If you cannot find the cue file, do what has been said before and convert the file to an ISO image.

Once you go to Nero to burn it, click on the button that says "Burn Image to Disc"

I believe all this has already been established, but its what needs to be done.
