I was told by a friend that just about anyone that has a CD-R can put a movie on a cd. He told me to download a movie in .avi format and convert it to .mpeg. The from there just burn it on a cd as a data file. Heres the problem. I got the movie and tried to convert it to .mpeg, which was succesful. Now the two part of the movie were both 227 MB before converting, when i went to put them on the cd they were borth 1.19 GB. What do I do to make it work? :tazz:

When .mpegs are loaded to a cd they usually have the .dat extension, not the .mpeg extension. Another thing is there are several different formats for .mpegs, some more suited to making into a cd.

Hello!

There is a freeware program that will help you with these steps and it is very easy to use. VCDGear [http://www.vcdgear.com/] that allows to rip MPEG files from VCD dat files and lets you compile a VCD disc image by simply adding each MPEG file as a separate track! I have this program for some time and been very happy with it and it is a freeware program with no spy/adware.

Hope that help!

Cheers,
Tom
