Hi there,
My fiancee (she's the brainy one) has heard that it is possible to format a
CD-R with a DVD filesystem. A disk so formatted will read as if it were a
DVD by a DVD player BUT this does not increase the storage capacity of the
CD-R. It will still only have 640 megs on it. So squeezing a movie on will
take several disks.
This may not be the same thing, so ask around.
