m intrested if there is any program that can split an dvd iso image on to 7-8 cds. to be more specific i have an 4.2 iso image with a game but i want to split that iso and burn it on cd
s and install the game from cds not from dvd i hope i`ve made myself undertood
I’m fairly sure that due to CD checks, that is impossible.
The only possibility that I could think of would be to use a backup program (eg BackupMyPC) that splits an image over mulitple Cds. Installing the game would be a case of restoring the image from backup & mounting the resultant image on a virtual drive (eg Daemon Tools). This is cumbersome to say the least.
I would have thought that 7/8 CDs cost more than a single DVD, but if you’ve not got a DVD writer then that’s not a possible option.
Without constructing a custom install process to request “insert CD 2/3/4” etc I cannot see that there is any easy way.
The ideea is that i need a prog that will ask for next disk… the problem is not that i don
t have a dvd rw but i need the game on cds so can u tell me what progs can i use for custom install and split the image on cd`s ?
Actualy i belive i need a program first to split the image on 700 mb iso then i need a program that will make an custom install but i didn`t find any so it will be very usefull if you can tell me some
I think the only way you can do it is with C++
I think the only way you can do that as well is with C++
There is no such thing like universal program to do that… u can do it by yourself 1 split DVD on a 7-8CD … then write setup.exe …which will copy files (from splited into CD’s dvd) into right place and edit reginstry.
there is other whay to do that… more simple… if that have u got 2 OS (win) if yes check if game can be runed from other OS (not that where u instaled it). if it’s working its mean … its dont need regenstry entris … it making its selvs after run…
if not working … there should be error signature “missing file… or reg entry” then reboot (to windows where u instal it) look for “missing file” win Windows CAtalog, “reginstry entrys” u can export… using regedit.exe
After this u can pack whit winrar instalation catalog on caple CD’s + file.reg whit reg entries it could work :S
to check reginstry entries … u can use norton reginstry compare
to check files copied to Windows u can use F3 and find by date
… the problem is that win WinAce i
ve packed all the content of that on cds. After this i
ve burned on cds and now i
t asks for next cd but it only copy the content of this on hdd. This is one way of doing it :) but ... i know someone that made from the same dvd 7 cds with GTA game and now when i insert the cd1 it starts with the setup same as on dvd… so it used an program to do that. And yes he dosen`t want to tell me how
why do u need to extract it? I’m wondering if u actually bought the game or downloaded it illegally…
Actualy i bought it but as you know the game is on dvd and i need to install the game on another pc where i only have cd rw so that`s why i need this. There are few games that where released only on dvd and i want to have them on cd.
Well then… The incredibly easy fix is to just buy a cheap DVD-ROM for that computer. I really don’t think this is worth the trouble.
… yeah that would be an option but still i need to know if there is any programs to do this…
None that I’ve heard of. I think anyone developing such a thing would realize that their profit margins would be quite low, due to the cost of DVD-ROM drives being incredibly cheap.
- made image of that f… DVD
- split image to caple CDs
- copy all CD’s and unpack to get image of DVD
- instal nero image drive
- … instal game
