Ive been looking all over, couldnt find any anywhere. Any size would do really, as long as its more than 700 mb. ***, why cant I find bigger blank cds?

Well, if u think u know better why ask.

Make it into a vcd or svcd then. It might fit.

Because I wasnt asking if there is such a thing, i was asking where I can buy them from. Its already compressed as far as its gonna go.

Well if u want to put it on cd and watch it on something else other than a PC, I wouldnt try and copy it as is to the cd.

I doubt it'll work. It'll be better if u used something like Nerovision or similar so it burns it to cd, in the right format.

So, it'll be playable in a normal dvd player. If this is what u want to do.

I dont even have a tv, its all puterized. The sole point is to find a place that sells 700mb + blank cds.
I had a bunch of 870 mb discs but theyre all used up now and I cant even find 790 here in nz.

I have seen 800 (I think) MB in a Warehouse Stationery shop. But that was a while ago.

South City. Christchurch. :D They are a national company, but what they stock does change over time.

But google.co.nz, when fed with "800 MB CD-R" and "800MB CD-R" (with the "NZ sites" button set) will help. There are at least two places which have them on their web pages.
