A 1.3 hour movie is recorded on a DVD, not a CD. DVDs can hold a minimum of 4.7 GB, or nearly seven times the capacity of CDs. Your 867 MB file of 8.03 minutes indicates that you were recording at about 1,800 KB/sec, or the highest quality recording level. (See specifications here.) If you're willing to record your video in a smaller size, you can get much more recording on a CD.

The S3380 is a still camera with limited video capabilities, not a true video camera. No matter how big the memory card, a single movie clip cannot exceed nine minutes.
This limitation is due to economics, not technical. In some countries video cameras are taxed at a higher rate than still cameras. A still camera that cannot record for ten minutes is considered to be a still camera, not a movie camera, and is thus taxed at the lower rate.
How often do you see something in a movie lasting ten minutes, shot continuously from the same viewpoint with the same camera? Usually movies are made by splicing together shorter clips.
If you really need to be able to film longer clips, like a family member performing in a play or a concert, then you need a true video camera.
For capturing movies in the Camera, turn the mode dial of the Camera to the Movie position. Click here to open the handbook Manual of the Camera. Refer to page # 18 of the manual for the information on selecting the movie mode for shooting movies using the mode dial.
If you have Windows XP or better, you also have "Windows Movie Maker". Use this program to compress your videos to a usable size. Keep in mind, with compression comes some loss in quality, depending on how much you want to shrink it.
