On my 98se computer i have a video that i wish to email to my xpcomp, it is 3.65mb i have used
winzip to zip it, but it still gets returned as to large, does anyone know how to compress a vem
file on 98se, and then how to uncompress on xp pro, Mammak
ps this video was taken with a web cam.

A file of that size is not too big to archive across two or three floppy disks. I think Win Zip has that function.

No Pesala no cd/rw on the 98se, and the file is to big to write to floppy, so for now i have downloaded this from click here and now need to work out how to use a MS-DOS PROMT
it is all to much but will keep trying, thanks for your response i will tick for now on till either i work it out or give up the latter being most likley regards Mammak

Use WinZip to SPLIT the file for you.

You can split it into floppy disk size chunks and then transfter with a couple of floppies.
