At the current moment, I'm trying to burn a divx to a 800mb (90mins) cdr.

The problem is however is that gcombust cannot see it as 90mins? I would suppose some quick hack is out of a question but anyone else had any luck trying to burn onto those cds? I did change to 'user' and specific a number (410,000 sectors = 800mb) but it still burns up to 87mb and fails =(

Should I try again with a different software?

1. First make sure your recorder supports 800mb discs, since not all of them do.
2. Try mkisofs & cdrecord (besides gcombust is just a frontend for them :)) :
Code:
# mkisofs -JR -l -V put_some_label_here Movie.avi | cdrecord dev=X,Y,Z speed=SPEED driveropts=DRIVEROPTS -v -eject -

where X,Y,Z = your recorder on the scsi (or ide-scsi) chain, run cdrecord -scanbus to find out. SPEED=(speaks for itself :)). DRIVEROPTS = here u put support for burnproof etc. try 'cdrecord dev=X,Y,Z driveropts=help -checkdrive' to find out what you cd-r supports. Don't forget the final - .
For more info man mkisofs, cdrecord.
3. If it works, let us know too. I' ve never tried writing on 800mb cd-r's :)
