    Hello,

    I have downloaded a movie to may hard drive. Due to its size, I don't want to keep it there, but it is a little bit too large to fit on a 700 MB CD. Is there a way to split the file and burn it onto 2 CD's. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks...

    Hi, What file type is it in now? What version of Windows are you using.....and, what software are you using to burn it to CD?

    Here is a quick google search result on movie file splitting, don't know if some are free ones or shareware, in any case you should find something that will work.

    And check this previous post about what you need to do:

    The nero wave editor which ships with version 6 will do just that .
