file compression

Ok well my problem is that i just got giants: citizen kabuto from my friend, and i put it on my computer and can play without the cd just fine. But the file is in a .exe format and it's 770 megs. the most you can fit on a cd-r is 700 megs so i was wondering, is there a way to fit it on a cdr? My friend got it of kaza so i think that's why it may be so big but i'm not sure. any help would be apreciated.

Use a hammer, but be fucking careful. *lol*

That should fit if you can find a way to write it as Mode 2 Form 2 rather than Mode 1. Keep in mind, however, that this makes the disc more vulnerable to dirt/damage.

It's a rip, not a cd image, so if you try to burn it, it's not going to work. Just run the .exe and let it do all the work since that's not the games .exe, but a large executable that will be doing some serious decompressing and extracting.
