    Have you tried compressing it with Winzip?

    And after you compress it and (if) you do get it to fit on a CD, what do you plan for the use of that CD? If it will be just storage, you should be OK. But if you plan for the file to be "accessed" it will have to be uncompressed first - have you decided how you plan to do that?

    Sal, I think you're just going to have to TRY it to see what happens. IF (and that's a big IF!) you are able to compress it with Winzip as Leif suggested and IF it will fit on a CD, that's only one step. Now, if you view a CD from Windows Explorer and double-click on the Zip file, usually one is able to "execute" a file from the Winzip viewing window. Since I've never tried it from a CD before, I don't know if it will work or not. AND, that assumes that the user who's trying to do the viewing has either Winzip installed or is running Windows XP or has some other application installed that is smart enough to open a Zip file and deal with the included files without extraction.

    If all of this is NOT true, then one would have to extract the file to a hard drive each time in order to be able to view the film. It sounds like you are in for a little experiment, Sal. Good luck with it and let us know how you make out. I also don't have any experience with compressing a movie file, so I don't know if you will achieve a very good compression ratio.

    Sal,

    Have you tried to burn it to the disc at the 706MB yet? According to this post you should be able to fit it...I haven't burned a CD for quite a while now, so I can't help you from personal experience...

    - Brett

    I think what you may have to do is break up the file into 2 pieces.

    Here is a link to some <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> software which may help you. Not sure of the law behind this but you may want to read it first...good luck
