    I have a 4.9 GB image I want to split it and burn it to 2 DVD for data storage not use, so when I would need it I would join the files after copying both to pc and mount the iso...please reply ASAP...

    Wouldn't a dual layer dvd be better? 8gb on 1 dvd instead of 2? Your LG shows it supports DVD DL which is a dual layer

    Linux: using command: split -b 3G big.iso part
    Windows: use WinRar and split compress or use PowerIso and make split .daa files

    WinRAR but yes, DVD+/-R DL is the better route.

    Winrar is a good option if you want a paid product.
    7zip is the freeware version of winrar.

    I'm going to agree with everyone before me that said just use a dual layer DVD.

    i will say winrar or 7zip else everyone else, but a Dual-layer DVD shouldn't be that hard to find or have i been sleeping while dvd discs has gone away? ^^;

    i used a couple of DL discs in my life but mostly been normal DVD-R/+R even RW's.

    We're also pretty good at making pie, folding various items, and trading in fine silks.

    Hwsplit does also a fine job of splitting files
