    I downloaded an iso. image containing "Driver Pack 17.7.4. which is 11.1 GB.Can anyone tell me what I can burn this on? Can I use the regular 4.7 GB DVD on multiple disks or somehow compress the files? I use ROXIO 20-10 software.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. Looks like I'm out of luck on this one. Only the Blue ray 25GB disk and equipment will hold and play the volume which I don't have.
    I tried the USB option but it did not work. I'll just forget the project.

    Is this a bootable iso? A usb flash drive will work, as long as it's formatted to ext4, but then windows can't read it, unless you install "ext4explore". It actually runs as a stand alone program, you don't need to "install" it. You do have to run it as administrator though, then you can "save" it back to your hard drive. Another option, do you have an android phone? You could transfer the file to your phone storage, via your computer, assuming you have enough room, on your phone storage.

    I get it, you don't want to re-download it, it's a big file. Do you know how to mount the ISO? Or, download the portable version of "Izarc". Then you can extract the contents of the ISO, to a folder, then copy however many individual files that fit to the flashdrive(s), you have. Just a note, "Fat32", has a files size limitation, of 4gb, max. per file, so as long as each file, is under that size, you can just fill the drive. Hope this helps.

    Thank you drfootware. I mounted the ios. and found out their was more junk than drivers in the download. I erased the iso. completely.

    Thanks drfootware, I went searching and discovered that 7-zip will extract the files from an ISO. That something I normally don't do. The majority of my ISO files are linux live distros and I "burn" them to a USB stick to boot.

    drfootware, it did help the OP. He discovered that the huge file he downloaded contained lots of junk. He didn't waste time trying to burn junk to a DVD.

    It also helped me to discover if I'm faced with a large ISO, I can look at the contents without wasting time "burning" it to a USB stick.
