This is normal. I recently got a movie that was 720 MB in a bin/cue format and thought it would never fit on a CD. However, I downloaded a program called CDRWin and it burns Video CDs from bin/cue files, and the Video CD fit a 720 MB dat file on a 650 MB CD. Try converting the dat file to mpeg and then burning it as a video CD, it should fit with room to spare. Good luck!

I am still finding ways to put larger size into the CD, i have seen HVCD that stores 1.1 GB!. I heard it is only possible with press CD not CDR.
