HJSplit

can split your files down so you don't have to buy something you don't want to... Google works if you use it...

here's the link to look at it...

You can also do the same thing with WinRAR or some other zipping application that you may have on hand.

I highly suggest that you puchase a DL Burner anyway, because you can get them for around 30 USD now. Now the media on the other hand. That is where it is really pricey.
