    You could use an archive program such as winrar or winzip.

    Run Winrar and use the wizard.

    When your at the choose achieve screen make sure you click browse and select where to save the files.

    Make sure you read the screen during the achieve options this is when you tell it to make the parts small enough to go on cd's (drop down menu at the bottom).

    You can select all of your video files at the same time to get the most out of your cd's. If you do it that way you can't open up single video files without extracting the whole thing.
