You will have to divide 25Gigs up into 4.7Gig Parts to fit on a DVD and burn each disk separately. There is no multi-disk burning tool that I know of that is in existence.

You could then take each 4.7Gig part and compress it to possibly get 2 zipped files onto a DVD.

Well...there is DVD-spanning software, if that's what you want to do.


I would suggest not doing that, since (IMO) it just increases the risk of not being able to properly access the other DVDs if something goes wrong.

I would simply break the files up into quantities manageable on one disk...and then burn them and indicate the divisions on the disks.
