    write a file into 2 DVDs


    hi guys
    i think all of you know my example : i have a game that was written into 2 DVDs and when i want to install this game and insert DVD1 and begin the installation , after for example 10 min it says you should insert DVD 2 for resuming the installation.
    i have an 8gig install file of a game(with iso format) so how can i write this into 2 DVDs that will install like my above example

    No DVD Required installation: Well the easiest way is to extract both ISO's to separate folders.

    Example: DVD 1 extract to a folder named dvd1, and DVD2 extract to a folder named dvd 2.

    Once both are extracted, run setup.exe (or similar file that starts the installation) in the DVD 1 folder.

    When asked to insert DVD2 to complete installation, it should let you "browse" to the folder or cd.

    With browse find DVD2 folder, and continue the installation.


    DVD Required Installation:

    Right click on ISO and click mount.

    Then right click and choose Send To in the list, Then send to your DVD/ DVD Drive (make sure the dvd is in)

    do same thing with dvd 2.

    I personally like the first method better.

    Wait, is it just one ISO?

    If yes, then extract it into one folder, and run setup to install. That should do the trick. No need to split the file.

    thanks my friends. i have 2 games that one of them is 2 iso file(pes 2013) and the other is 1 iso file(NFS hot pursuit)
    i want to use you DVD REquired installation to write them on DVD
    so i mount the pes 2013 by ultraiso but when i right click on the virtual Drive , i can not see the "send to" option.see the picture below
    Click image for larger version
    and for the NFS when i extract it by ultraiso on one folder and run the setup how can i write this 8gig setup into to DVD that will be like my example in first post?

    Sorry, I meant Right click on the iso and Choose the Send To menu.

    In there choose The DVD drive where your dvd is in.

    This is what I would do with my ISO's, although I don't do game ISO's much.


    Here go to this link, It will help you more than I. I'm not to sure I understood you right.

    Try mounting with daemon-tools or equivalent. It creates a virtual device that you can quickly toggle mounted images.

    I haven't had a ton of success with the built-in ISO mounting capabilities of Windows for things like you're trying to accomplish.

    i think the only way this will work is if you know what files from the iso need to be on each dvd[1 and 2 ] ,or else the install of the game after you make the 2 dvd's will have issues installing ,like it might not know when its at the end of disk 1 ,if the file to tell it is on disk 2, ect ect .so if you know what file belong on each dvd then you just us win8 to mount the iso and move the files for each dvd to 2 newly created folders and make you dvd from there
