    So I downloaded the hi-res version of Pirates last night, the most expensive porn ever made.

    It was 10gigs all together but the actual movie is a 7 gig .wmv file. I don't have any dual layer disks lying around :(

    Is there a program that can split .wmvs up so that I can burn this to 2 DVD's.

    I searched for awhile and didn't come up with much, although there is a lot of shareware that can do this type of thing.

    Thanks. :wavey:

    negative, and then the kicker, i found out you can't transfer more than 4 gigs to Fat32 drives.

    I tried one external harddrive and 2 ipods and later found out they were all Fat32.

    I ended up burning the .rars and giving them to a buddy.

    ummm :hs:

    http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windows2000serv/reskit/core/fncc_fil_tvjq.mspx?mfr=true

    Table 3.11 FAT32 Size Limits
    Maximum file size: (2^32) - 1 bytes


    2^32 = 4,294,967,296
    (2^32) - 1 = 4,294,967,295, which is the maximum number of bytes in a file stored on a FAT32 disk.

    4,294,967,295 = 4 GB - 1 byte, to be precise, or it's easier to just say 4 GB.
