PLEASE HELP !! THE VCD BLOCKS R GETTING TA ME <:'-(

If that is indeed SVCD it's normal for a 700mb CD to have a playing time of 36mins max. This is one fo the reasons SVCD didn't become so popular: 3 discs are needed for a 90min. film. How and where do u know that that SVCD u have is 40mins 45mins 50mins???
