    Hi Bagera,
    I have three options for you...

    1) What software did you use to grab the video off the camera? Do you have time to do it again? If so, just grab the first half and then grab the second half in another file.

    2) Use authoring software to author the video and then convert into a DVD.

    3) Go to Google and search for "split avi file". I did and got several ideas....including this one... http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/cut_avi_with_virtualdub.cfm

    Adder.
