I want to Burn Folders to my DL  DVDs and they are large files.

So I need to Span the DVDs.

 

So I got Infra Recorder FREE and they say it can Span Discs.

 

I loaded all my Folders into the Burn Screen and clicked Burn and it told me it Burnning Failed.

 

I went into all the settings for Infra Recorder and looked for Disc Span and found nothing.

 

All my Files are about 3 GB in size but I have a lot of them so Disc Spanning will help a lot?

 

Can anyone help how do I do Disc Span with Infra Recorder?

If no one else replies here, I may move this to Audio/Video.

If all of your files are about 3gb in size, why do you need to span them? A DVD holds about 7gb of data. Also, is a USB stick an option? If I have to move a large set of files, 30 to 40gb, then I just use a USB stick.

Some of my Files are about 3.40 GB and some are about 4 GB.

 

But I have I would say around 90 or so Files.

 

Thanks for the help.

I would suggest that if you are trying to burn files to DVDs for storage (not because they are video files you want to play on a tv or other device which is not a full computer) then 7z might be a good option. It is available from somewhere in the downloads section of this site i beleive. It can take a large file and put it into a split archive. You should be able to specify to make each archive it is split across small enough to fit on a single DVD. Obviously if you will need to get all the DVDs together and use 7z to combine the archives from them when you want to get the file within them back, so a file split across discs like this couldn't be used in any device which was not capabel of running 7z.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
