    Yup.. Just burn it as a Video CD.. It will take the 723 MB file without a problem. Actually Video CDs and Audio CD's go by minutes and not MB's.

    Yes .. right as kalpik said ..just burn it in vcd mode only.
    otherwise it wont play in vcd player


    dat files are of larger size .. wen u use vcdgear to convert it to .mpg .. its get reduced a little.
    dat files are raw files .. so that they can be read at vcd players
    even more than 730MB dat files can be fit on CD-R sometimes in vcd mode

    n

    For DATA CD --> You can burn upto 722 mb in Overburn .. but u should choose disc at once

    yeah,for video n audio,u can can use this method.
    But,if ever u want more than 700Mb of data,u can try overburning if supported by ur drive.
