    Hmmm... what to reply to hehe... yay 1st post! :p
    1. Enable overburn
    2. As i answered on the other thread, you also need to specify the amount of overburn
    3. Cheaper media may not be able to overburn as much
    4. Make sure, when you are overburning to burn painfully slow
    5. If your needs require constant overburning, might you consider larger media? 90/99 minute discs_X_X_X_X_X_[small]ASUS A7V8X-X, AMD2500+
    Samsung 1024MB, PC2700
    360GB [3x120GB, 7200, 8MB]
    MSI Starforce, GeForce4 Ti4400 128MB

    sorry i wasn't sure if i should start a new thread or not since it was about a different topic.

    I jsut set the overburn limit to 90 minutes, and it still just ejects the CD and doesn't ask if I want to overburn, which is rather fishy.

    actually on the top of the fileburning dialog it says
    485:03.53
    4897 MB
    i don't know if that's the disk space remaining, or it for some reason thinks the CD is that long...

    That would defintiely do it.... no amount of overburning in the world is gonna fit 4900MB onto a cd hehe. Are you trying to burn the giant ass WAV file as a data cd? hehe

    Well the file itself is 799 MB, which would make sense for not fitting as a data CD, but it certainly isn't THAT big.

    Do you know if there is something in a cue file that denotes how long a CD is, or whether it is an audio CD?

    799MB of compressed WAV or PCM wav? I assume its compressed WAV which leads me to check the length of the audio track (i.e. how long it is, recall you can only fit 80 minutes or so onto a cd)

    well now i feel like a total fool..

    i hadn't realized that when i was screwing around with the cue file trying to get rid of the error on line 45 i left the index of track 13 later than that of track 14, so obviously it became on hell of a long track and screwed things up mightily.

    praetor, thanks a lot for your kindness and understanding
