Im currently using Nero to backup my DVD games. However everytime i try to copy one that is over 4 gig in size it comes up with an error and stops copying. I definatly have enough space on my hard drive as i alsway keep about 6 gig free.

Does anyone know if there is any known problems with nero or if you have any other suggestions then i would be greatful. thx

we need specs. Computer & operating sytem specs.
Common file size limitation of Windows ME, you need NTSF file system for files over 4 gigs.

Windows 98 won't support any files over 4 GB, however, if you use Stomp RecordNow Max, you can just use the copy option. Not sure how that one works, but it copies fine. That's what I did, since I have Win 98 SE. I tried Nero at first, but remembered about the limitation, so I figured I'd give Stomp a try, since I remembered it had an option to split an image into more than one file. Unfortunately, using that option freezes my program, but the regular copy worked alright as well.
