    Hello
    I have a movie and want to burn it to disc. It is 4.3 gigs. When I extract the img file with winrar, it says the file is too large. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    hi

    never seen or heard of winrar saying a file is to big?

    use iso isobuster and extract it! and if is a dvd film load to dvd shrink to make smaller then burn it

    I extract the img file with winrar, because they are all winrar files to start off with. When I extract it, this error comes up "There is not enough space on the disk - Write error: Only NTFS file system supports files larger than 4 GB"

    hi

    windows 98 / ME use fat32 file systems XP PRO uses NTFS file system (rare ocasions xp can be on fat32,)

    fat 32 cant use or cope with files of 4 gig and over! but xp pro can as it uses ntfs...

    you need to convert your hard drive to ntfs so then you can extract the over 4 gig file in winrar...

    or get another hard drive and make that ntfs by right clicking in my computer on the drive and format (erase) to ntfs
