    I am needing to burn a large file and take it to another computer. I'll be using a dvd burner. what i was wondering was if the computer i take it to needs a DVD player to read the dvd burnt disc? If not, is there bigger size capacity CD-RW discs to hold around a gig?

    Yes, both systems would need a DVD drive to do that. As for large capacity CD's, the largest I've seen are around 800 megs.

    HI,

    Span the file across two two CDR's using Winzip of split it into segments and burn them to CDR, then rejoin them on the new host machine.

    Split the file with a program such as HJSPLIT, there are numerous other file splitting programs available.

    Yes if you burn a dvd in dvd format you have to have the other PC ot have a DVD reader. I think the largest format CD I have seen is 900 mb but i have heard those can be unreliable and notp lay in all types of CD-Rom's
