kpg -> win 98 and 4 gig file problem (5/22/2003 3:39:36 PM)
has ne1 been sucsessful in backing up thier dvds in win98 se
win 98 has a limit of 4gigs for file sizes -- so i was not able to create images on the hard drive nor was i able to do a on the fly copy -- is there a fix for this or a work around -- like choping up the file ( i read somewhere that said you shouldnt chop up the file)

That is because it is FAT32 and so there is a limit on the size the file can be. NTFS does not have this limit. I get around this by using Pintical Instant Copy, or DVDXCopy. With these softwares you can back up those DVDs......

Why do you want to back up through an image file which is too large for handling with Fat32?
All files on a DVD are max 1GB and there are many free softwares to help you first get those files on your HD and then get them on a DVD Video Compliant form on a DVD-R/DVD+R through suitable DVD burning software. Nero is an excellent burning software.
I would suggest that you go to www.dvdrhelp.com to get all necessary info, software links and guides to carry out your back up task.
