Multi Volume CD Files

I have an appl file greater than the capacity of a single CD that I want to b/u. I tried burning this file from the appl (Family Tree maker) as well as from Roxio v6.2, both unsuccessful. Is there anything else short of installing DVD burner worth trying? I'm running XP Home w/SP2.

Sorry, should have mentioned that even a Zipped file is still much too large.

WinZip and some others allow file splitting

which is what you need if you don't want to go the DVD route.

To split a Zip file into smaller pieces (using WinZip):

1. Open or create the Zip file.

2. Choose Split from the Actions menu.

3. Specify the name to be used for the split Zip file. The name must be different from the name of the open Zip file.

4. Specify the size to be used for the individual parts. You can choose from common sizes using the Part size drop-down list or you can specify your own size. To specify your own size, choose "Other size" in the drop-down list and type the desired size in the Other size field. You can specify the size in bytes, kilobytes (KB), or megabytes (MB); indicate which you're using by clicking the appropriate radio button. The minimum size allowed is 65,536 bytes (64KB).

5. Click OK to create the split Zip file.
