Mac user .

I have started writing my photos to 4.7G DVD's rather than 700MB discs.

I find that when I put items in 'burn' folder, they seem to be under the 4.7G limit - but when I try and burn a DVD it says ? MB overflow - remove some files & try again . I do that & it writes fine.

Are there any programs that will split a large file into 4.7G chunks ready for writing?

Get Winrar and then you can use the split feature to get it to split a zip or rar into multiple dvd sized files. You may need to copy the entire set of disks to your hdd in order to unpack the files though. There may be some option in the program to have each zip have whole files though.


I don't hate macs or OSX, I hate people and statements that portray them as better than anything else. Macs are A solution, not THE solution. Get a good desktop i7 with Windows 7 and come tell me that sucks for photo or video editing.
