Question Any way to divide a huge DVD file into smaller ones ?

Hi there,

I got a 5.17 GB .iso file , i dun have a DVD-R . Is there a way to partition this file into smaller ones so i can burn it on ordinary CD-R ?

Gsplit should work and it's free.

Would you be interested in compressing it?

Thanks all for replying...just wanna ask something else

Warez Monster : I thought about compressing it using winrar , but i wondered wat would be the size of the compressed file ? still in GB , so i gave up the idea...am I right or wat u think ?


EricB : I checked out dvd-shrink's description , it says it shrinks files to fit in DVD-R , i guess that wont work with me , coz i need to fit it in a cpl of CDs. am I right , or missing something ?

Cheers

Warez ment compressing with DVD shrink. Eric said use DVD shrink. I know you can uber compress the movie in DVD shrink to fit a CD format try DVD shrink.

yeah winrar can extract an .iso file (right click file and pick extract here). it will then be valid dvd files. you can now use dvd shrink to shrink it. but if you want to shrink to cd size and still have good
quality, use auto gk or win dvdcopy2
