You won't be able to play the split file, as remarked above. You can split files to transport them, but have to paste them again before using them. Use http://www.google.com/search?&q=download%20%22file%20split%22 to find file splitting software you like.

A DVD-burner, of course, is a good way to transport files up to about 4 Gb without such ado.

Hope this helps.

Sound like you just got the Windows Code Name Longhorn file. It's an ISO file and the only way (right now) is to burn it into your DVD.

If I was you, I would use the DVD-RW or DVD+RW because the Longhorn project is planed to be released for beta next year and we don't want to waste to many DVD-R nor DVD+R.

Regards,
