Firstly you will need the Xvid codec - If you can watch the movie on your PC then you've got it !

It really depends what you want to watch it on....

I use a combination of TMPGenc.exe and EO Video.exe converter programs do a search of the Internet to fond them -- you will have to experiment to find out which one is best for you.

I find that I use EO Video to convert to AVI then TMPGEnc to covert to MPEG format so I can then burn to VCD.

They both have an editing facility which will convert to file sizes of your choice - in this case split into two files....

assuming that you want too do this to play on a dvd player? you will need to encode into vcd format, all the help you could need can be found at click here but provided your dvd player can play them i would convert to kvcd details at click here

However if you want to just cut them cos they dont fit on your cds but still want to play on pc, i would definatly recommend some 800mb cds, they are cheap as chips and you dont have to worry about cutting at all, but if you insist then try programs such as bbmpeg or vdub.

hope this helps!

Why not get yourself down to Staples and but some 700mb cdr's from TDK they are on offer at £9.99 for 20. I put 780 mb movies on them and no probs.

get a program called NeoDivX from

click here

It has all sorts of tools for playing around with files like this - you want the one called AVI Cutting - give it the file and how big you want to split the file into and it will cut it for you.

eg specify 400MB to fit it onto 2 650MB discs or 100MB to fit it onto (8) 100MB ZIP disks

Or suggest you purchase some 700MB CDr's. If you're serious you can get 500 for 14pence each at click here or dabs.com is probably better for less volumes.
