If you just need to transport a file using DVD's then why not use winRAR or a similar program and split the archive it creates into two or more pieces. Then, after you've burned the pieces onto two disks, you can copy/paste them onto their destination system and unrar/extract them back out to be one file again. Hope the info helps!

Pretty much. You just drag all the separate parts of the Rar'd archive to one location on the destination computer then unrar from the first archive file ( the .rar one). Alternatively, if you don't have winRAR, 7zip will do the same job and it's free, Download it here: 7-Zip
