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......

Hi kpg

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 to get all necessary info, software links and guides to carry out your back up task.

Best of luck and happy viewing
