Be careful might damage the rewriter.

If your CD writer does not support over burn then leave well alone.

Some writers support it. My Freecom 32A does, but I won't chance utilising it.

Even with writers that support it you can have very serious consequences.

Proceed at your own peril.

Split the file and burn to two CDs. Not Ideal, but then!!

You cannot fit a 889MB file onto an 80min CD!

80 min CDs will only hold 700MB of data, with over burn you can only realistically get about another 3-4 MB of safe over burning.

I use 99 min CDs and they will only hold a maximum of approx 865MB so even then you still couldnt fit it onto one of these.

If you wish to convert MPEG or any other format to Video CD format then you need to split the movie over two disks.

The best method is to convert the film to SVCD format which is higher quality but will still only use up two CDs.

As for over burning in general, my Philips drive has never had any problems and I do it all the time, writing to 99min Infiniti CDRs. If the drive ever packs in then I will simply buy a new one as they are dirt cheap these days.
