Im not sure if this is the right forum but, here I go.

I have a DVD image which is 3.36 GB and I was wondering if there is software out there that will allow me to put that 3.36 GB onto several CD's. As I do not have a dvd burner, only a CDRW and a DVD-Rom.

Please help.

HJSplit (freeware)

But I don't understand why an XP cd would be over 3 gigs. An install, yes, but not the original cd. If you have copied your Windows files from your hard drive in an effort to have a backup, that won't work. You can not install XP from an image like that.

Ok, mebby I should of been more specific. It is a copy of my XP Corperate Pro CD and I modified it. That is why it is 3 GB. I then made an ISO image of it. It is a bootable iso image. So, getting back to my main delema, I want to split up this 3GB and put it onto CD's because I dont have a DVD-RW. I want to install it on my other computers also.

My method of install I want to make like a 2 or 3 CD game. Once it is finished with one CD, it asks you for annother CD. Is this possible to do with an OS?

Is so, will HJ-Split work to do that?

I am closing this thread. If you can persuade dsenette to reopen it, good luck. You don't have a corporate edition XP cd, or you would know you owned a product license key, not a cd. I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do here, but please review the Terms of Service here at G2G and make sure that anything you post is in compliance. We don't help with unethical/illegal activities. Period.
